The Town of Ponoka is launching a second round of public consultation on an expanded skate park for the community.
Ponoka citizens are being invited to view an updated design of the skate park on the Town’s online engagement platform at www.LetsTalkPonoka.ca.
Initial public input was gathered in 2022on a conceptual design for the expanded skatepark. That conceptual design has since been updated to incorporate the initial public input.
The current conceptual plans could see the existing Hamilton Skate Park extended south to include the space currently occupied by the former Town of Ponoka recycling yard.
The sidewalk in front of the Hamilton Skate Park would also be extended south to connect with the pedestrian bridge that crosses over the Battle River and connects with the river valley trail system.
Construction of the expanded skate park will depend on future consideration and approval of the park design, location and budget by Town Council.
