Skatepark design shows plenty of heart

Open house planned for next Wednesday

The existing Stettler skatepark

Two hearts form the focus of a new skatepark proposed for Stettler.

Conceptual drawings will be presented during on open house next Wednesday night.

The park is planned for a site on 62 Street near the spray park.

Stettler Skatepark Association and Stettler Parks and Leisure Services invite skatepark users and citizens to offer suggestions during the open house at the Stettler Recreation Centre from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The plans have been drawn by New Line Skateparks.

“The design with the two hearts is what the skatepark association came up with,” said Lee Penner, director of parks and leisure services with the town.

People will be able to view 3D concept images, learn about the project fundraising and offer ideas for the final design.

“We need input from citizens and users about the design,” Penner said.

“This is your opportunity to help create the right thing for Stettler.”

Design of the park would accommodate all levels of skill, he said.

With a $75,000 contribution from the town, the association continues to raise money.

Since the project began more than one year ago, the association has gained many partners.
