Construction of the Waterford Skate Park complex will begin this month, dependent on the mild winter weather continuing.

Located beside the Waterford Heritage and Agricultural Museum at 159 Nichol Street West, the design of the 8,737 square foot structure will include a variety of features for skateboards and scooters, including a large bowl, banks, ramps, ledges, and coping that provide something for every skill level. The park will also contain accessible features, including benches and tables and a BMX bike pump track to allow beginner and intermediate riders to learn the basics.

The initial installation process will see a delivery of “granular A,” a specific material that makes up the base of the complex—some of which is recycled material from the now-demolished Waterford Silos that were located nearby.

Construction of the skatepark is estimated to last between 8 and 12 weeks, with a grand opening slated for late June.

The Waterford Skate Park Committee, made up of community volunteers, has been raising funds through grants, fundraising, and in-kind donations to contribute to the facility. Norfolk County also contributed to the cost of the park.
