The first Cumberland Skatepark Design workshop is scheduled for Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Junior Library at Cumberland Community School.

This event will give community members a chance to hear about and discuss elements of the park and skatepark design, and then take part in a design workshop to give input to the shape and form of the skatepark.

With the new playground and dog park complete, the Village of Cumberland has begun working on the next project in the Master Plan for the Village Park – the skatepark – and have partnered with the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) to do so.

Local landscape architects Outlook Land Design have partnered with Vancouver skatepark specialists Spectrum Skateparks to create the detailed designs required for construction.
