New Skatepark in Hamilton

Postby Powell » Fri Oct 31, 2008 11:20 pm

Good news for anyone living in or near Hamilton (Ontario). The City of Hamilton is busying working on a new project: Turner Skatepark. It's located @ the South Mountain Community Centre (which is also presently under construction).

Here are the blueprints:

And here is the photographic evidence...looks quite promising:

If you're looking for it, the new park on the South side of Rymal Road, just West of Upper Wellington (beside the police station).

Turner Open

The new skatepark in Hamilton is officially open to the public...got to skate on it the first week it opened (i.e. mid-April 2009), and had the place all to myself. They're still doing some work on site, but all the main features are complete. Here are a few more up-to-date pics:

Graffiti

Since this place is brand new - and located right beside a police station - there is no graffiti to be found anywhere (yet). Except for this first tag (not done by me...but i share the sentiment):
