Through the support of the Town, Municipality of the County of Antigonish, St. Francis Xavier University and the Antigonish Skatepark Association, our community will have its very own Skatepark in Fall 2019.

Skatepark Opening

The final pieces of major construction at the Antigonish All-Wheels Skatepark will be finished by the afternoon of Friday, November 22, 2019. The Town of Antigonish, Municipality of the County of Antigonish, St. Francis Xavier University and the Antigonish Skatepark Association are pleased to be able to open the skatepark with time left in the season for the community to enjoy the use of Antigonish’s newest recreation facility. 

New Line Skateparks is putting the final touches on landscaping and the fencing surrounding the site on West Street will be coming down on Friday, November 22, 2019, leaving the skatepark open for the community. There are a few additional projects that have yet to be completed, including installing the welcome signage that is being done in partnership with Admiral Glass & Signs, as well as additional landscaping work that will be completed in the Spring of 2020.

Site:

An agreement was reached with St. Francis Xavier University and they have generously agreed to lease the land along West Street to construct the skatepark. The Skatepark will enhance the 13,753 square foot site on West Street and will serve as a celebrated destination for Antigonish youth and their families. The location was selected due to its visibility, ease of access and its proximity to the RCMP station, which ensures the venue will be a safe space.

 Design:

After a competitive procurement process, New Line Skateparks has been awarded the contract to design Antigonish’s All Wheel Skatepark.

Groundbreaking picture featuring Mayor Boucher, Warden McCarron, Bill Gurney, Andrew Beckett, and Jason Mason.History was made on Monday, July 15 when the Town of Antigonish, Municipality of the County of Antigonish, St. Francis Xavier University and the Antigonish Skatepark Association joined members of the community for the official groundbreaking of the Antigonish All-Wheels Skatepark. Construction on 13, 753 square foot site on West Street is scheduled to begin on July 22 and will take approximately 10-12 weeks to complete.

The design for the park was completed by New Line Skateparks after a series of community consultation sessions. The design reflects the spirit of Antigonish with special features including an ‘X’ that symbolizes the StFX’s iconic X-Ring. 

Individuals and businesses rallied behind community champions who have been working on creating a Skatepark in Antigonish for nearly 30 years. The final design of the park will incorporate brick work that highlights the contributions of community donors who have invested their time, money and services to bring the Skatepark to life.
