Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park now open!

It’s back! Following a successful three-month pilot in 2010, the town reopened Oakville’s only indoor skateboard park at Kinoak Arena this past Saturday. Skateboard enthusiasts showed off their skills on the state-of-the-art equipment that features quarter pipes, grind boxes and launch ramps.

“It’s an innovative use for our empty ice pads during downtimes and we received tons of great feedback during last year’s pilot,” Oakville Mayor Rob Burton said. “And don’t forget to mark May 13 on your calendar for the Friday the 13th SK8 Jam which is sure to draw a huge crowd.”

The Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park offers sessions for younger and inexperienced skaters, as well as sessions for more seasoned riders. Drop-in schedules include all-ages; 12 and under; and 18 and over skateboarders.

Children eight and under must be accompanied by an adult aged 16 or older. CSA approved helmets are mandatory. Also new to Kinoak this year are birthday party rentals and private and semi-private lessons. For schedules, admission costs, programming, and rules and regulations visit the skateboad parks page.

The Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park, located at 363 Warminster Drive is open daily Monday to Saturday until September 1, 2011. To help enhance Oakville’s skateboard parks, users are encouraged to provide feedback by emailing recandculture@oakville.ca.

On Wednesday, April 27, 2011, at 7 p.m., town staff will present a report to the Community Services Committee that recommends Glen Abbey Park as the final home of the West Oaks Trails skateboard park that was closed last year. Oakville residents are invited to attend.
