Skate Park Committee close to fundraising goal

The committee is reportedly less than $5,000 away from reaching their goal.

Construction of the facility must be completed under a design-build structure, which the City says is put in place to ensure budget certainty, quality of design and construction, flexibility with construction plans and a continued opportunity for design changes as construction progresses.


New Line Skateparks has been contracted to complete the constuction of the new park, after they have been involved in the community consultation and design of the project since its beginning.

Although the City generally uses a traditional tendering process, sole sourcing the project was chosen due to the company's history with the project.

New Line's proposal has been used for grant applications, and their final design has been developed with the community over the past year.

Fort St. John's newest skate park will be located on the corner of 93rd Ave. and 93rd St.
