Mayor Lori Ackerman is currently out of town, however she says both the Rotary and the Sports Council deserve recognition for their efforts.
“The credit for this success goes to the dedicated community volunteers of the Rotary Club of Fort St. John and the Sports Council,” she says. “With the Rotary Club of Fort St. John recognizing the value of the project as a facility for youth to remain active, the community once again benefits from their generosity.”
The skate park will be located at 93rd Street and 93rd Avenue across from the new fire hall. Construction is expected to get underway in late spring, weather permitting.
New Line Skateparks has been contracted to complete the construction of the new park, after they have been involved in the community consultation and design of the project since its beginning.
