Pictou All Wheels Skate Park
The Town of Pictou is a progressive community that proudly supports active and healthy opportunities for our citizens. Over the past number of years, the Pictou County Skate Park Society; a local group dedicated to fund-raising, and the Town of Pictou have been working in partnership to construct a skate park facility for our community. The goal of this project is to provide a first-class, safe and accessible skate park that broadens the Town’s recreational opportunities and encourages active living for all ages and abilities. The facility will be an “all wheels” park that accommodates skateboards, scooters, in-line skating, and BMX bicycle users of all skill levels.
There was an examination of possible locations for a skate park in the Town of Pictou. As a result, the lands within Broidy Park were chosen. Currently, there is an asphalt pad with a small metal ramp for skateboarding located at Broidy Park. The location of this proposed skate park is in the same space and will enhance the larger recreational area that includes a playground, tennis courts and sports fields.
There have been several community engagement meetings which have gathered ideas on skate park features and designs. These meetings have been well attended. Currently, a 3D rendering of the design ideas is being developed; engineered drawings with complete costing will be completed by early April 2020.
The Pictou County Skate Park Committee and the Town of Pictou have contracted the services of Newline Skate Parks to develop the engineered drawings and the tender ready construction package of the Pictou All Wheels Skate Park.
