The Columbia Valley Skateboard Association is holding an open house to get input on design for a new skateboard park in Revelstoke

The CVSA has contracted New Line Skateparks to design the new facility, and the company will be in Revelstoke on November 27 to get public input on the design.

“Seeing this volunteer project through will require a big push from the community,” said Karl Jost, CVSA president. “This is an excellent opportunity for community organizations and businesses to get involved and learn about this project from the start. We’re really looking to build partnerships with organizations that can help fundraise or help with in-kind donations or assistance on this skatepark.”

The new skatepark will replace the existing one in Kovach Park. The CVSA is asking for “broad-based, creative input from the community.” They are looking for feedback from designers, architects, artists, engineers and others in order to come up with a design that reflects the community of Revelstoke.

The session will include an open house at 6 p.m., followed by a facilitated design session from 7–9 p.m. The CVSA and City of Revelstoke will also be holding private sessions with neighbourhood residents as part of the planning process.

The CVSA is spending about $25,000 on the design process; a site design is required to get funding for construction.
