Update May 16, 2022: Thanks for your interest in the Mahon Skate Park. City staff are currently reviewing the input received, and will use it to help design a new skate park in the summer of 2022.


We're building a skate park at Mahon Park, as the Lonsdale Skate Park is removed for construction of the new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre (HJCRC). The Mahon skate park will be located next to the basketball courts and pickleball courts.

Help Us Create a Design

We want to create a skate park that meets the needs of our skateboarders, so we want to hear from the skate community – and park users – about what this new amenity will look like.

How Your Input Will Be Used

Input shared with the City will be used in the final design for the skate park. Some of the elements will be ready towards the end of June. Future phases are being considered and are dependent upon additional funding approval.

    Why does the skate park have to be so close to the pickleball and basketball courts? This area is already congested. Can't it be located somewhere else in the park?

    Maureen Jarman asked 12 days ago

    The asphalt and concrete surfacing surrounding the sports court is in poor condition and has been identified as an area that would benefit from some positive park activity such as skateboarding.  By making the most of our existing infrastructure, we limit the need to expand concrete into the green landscape. Through the design phase, we will explore options to help with the flow of activity in this area.

    Will this be close to the water park? I can’t find a location, but only the layout. I have concerns about the safety of it being too close to such a busy and well used water park. My kids are pretty “together” for 4 and 5, but friends have runners and I see collisions if it’s too close. And run ins between parents and skaters as a result. That said- if it’s far enough away, we definitely NEED a place for teens to go.

    The skateboard park will be adjacent to the pickleball and basketball court on the western edge of the park, away from the waterpark.
