Brought to you by the KSA, Limitless Skate and Snow and the Town of Kentville. Don’t forget your helmet. See you there!

Town of Kentville Officially Commits $150,000 for skatepark project!!!

The town of Kentville has formalized its commitment of $150,000 towards the skatepark! After also being awarded a $100,000 federal grant through ACOA we are that much closer to reaching our financial target of $750,000 for 2017. If you live in the greater Kings County area please contact your municipal councillor to let them know you support a regional skatepark in our county and encourage them to approve our funding request for $150,000 to match the TOK commitment. We can make this park a reality in 2017!

Kentville Skatepark 2017 spring update: Let’s break ground this year!!!

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!!

Kentville Skatepark Update: Spring 2016

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 info@kentvilleskatepark.ca
