Help us map Canada's skateparks

Canada Skateboard and Skateparktour.ca have teamed up to map out all Canadian skateparks. Skateparktour.ca is a great resource for skateparks across Canada. With over 220 parks listed, it's the most in-depth park directory in the country.

We are asking the skateboarding community from Coast to Coast to help us identify skateparks that are not already mapped. We are interested in big and small, public or private, indoor and outdoor skateparks. Make sure that your favourite park is on the map!

Click here to view the map and make your contribution.


Send in your contributions by August the 31st for a chance to win one of three prizes:

  1.  Canadian Skateboarding"A Visual History" Coffee Table Book

  2.  Canada Skateboard Deck 

  3.  Canada Skateboard Hydroflask.

 


Women in Skateboarding Workshops
Canadian Women & Sport and Canada Skateboard will be hosting three virtual workshops throughout August and September.

These workshops are for everyone interested in building knowledge and capacity within the skateboard community to successfully engage girls and women as participants and leaders.
