Updated Nelson skatepark plans to be presented Thursday

City of Nelson is hosting another public open house on the all-wheel park to be developed at Art Gibbon Park.

City of Nelson is hosting another public open house on the all-wheel park to be developed at Art Gibbon Park.

The detailed design for the park will be on display this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. A formal presentation will be made at 7 p.m. with time for questions at 7:30 p.m.

Kootenay Lake Outdoor Skatepark Society hopes to develop a skatepark alongside the existing bike park, creating a so-called “all-wheel park.”

Residents got an initial look at the conceptual designs for the park development in January. The city approved the Rosemont site in February, which allowed the design team to go ahead with creating the detailed plans that will be on display Thursday.

The Outdoor Skatepark Society already has $600,000 of funding in place to pay for the construction of the park and plan to break ground in the coming months.

The society has been working for more than 10 years to build a skatepark in the community.
