TUESDAY NIGHT RAMP JAMS AT THE KENTVILLE ARENA
Come join the Kentville Skatepark Association every Tuesday Night from May through July from 6-9pm to skateboard, bike or scooter ride at the Kentville Arena. We will have a selection of ramps and rails there for you to enjoy. The $2 drop in fee goes straight to the construction of our skatepark, which is breaking ground in 2017. Brought to you by the KSA, Limitless Skate and Snow and the Town of Kentville. Don’t forget your helmet. See you there!
Check out the design for the Kentville skatepark. There has been a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes trying to get financial support for this project from various levels of government over the past year. We are getting more and more confident that big things are going to happen in 2017 for the Kentville skatepark! I am presenting to Kentville Town Council this Monday, March 20 at 7pm with an update on our project. If you support healthy active living in our town and want to see an amazing addition to our recreation infrastructure please come out to the meeting to show your support! Let’s break ground in 2017!!
After 3 years of fundraising, the Kentville Skatepark Association has raised just over $66,000 to put towards a concrete skatepark in the town of Kentville. This money comes from the financial support of individuals, fundraising activities, corporate donations, and community group support. The Town of Kentville has agreed to financially support the park and has also allocated land for the building site; however, this infrastructure project requires partnership with other levels of government to reach its fundraising target, including Provincial, Municipal and Federal branches. Past applications to the County of Kings for financial support for our initiative have been unsuccessful; the province recently cut its Recreation Facilities Development Grant and we currently have an application in process through ACOA for a grant from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. In light of these financial uncertainties, the KSA has recently voted to postpone construction of the skatepark until 2017, so that we can attempt to secure funding through these various levels of government over the next year. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to breaking ground in 2017! Please forward any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The next meeting of the Kentville Skatepark Association is this Thursday September 17 at 7pm at Kentville Town Hall (354 main street). We have an amazing 3D rendering of the final park design to show off. We are also gearing up to roll out our corporate package. We are looking for local businesses to sponsor our facility (either financially or through in-kind donations, like concrete, fill, landscaping services etc) Come find out how you can support your local skatepark! If you can’t make the meeting but would like more info on our corporate sponsorship package please e-mail me at email@example.com
