Share your ideas for a new skatepark!

New Westminster Secondary School is being redeveloped and the existing Mercer Stadium skatepark needs to be relocated. The City of New Westminster is using this opportunity to work with skaters and the community to learn about their ideas, interests and considerations for a new skatepark and its location.

In the coming months there will be lots of ways to share your ideas and comments.

Upcoming events

Join in the action or cheer on
the skaters at the New West Skateboard Competition. Drop by the New West Skatepark booth to tell us what’s important to you for the new skatepark.


Planning for the new skatepark will take place in phases throughout 2017. We’ll be using the feedback we get to shape and refine the project along the way. Once we have a final concept, we will take it to City Council for approval and aim to start construction by Spring 2018.

Phase 2 - Exploring early concepts
