The Rotary Club of Nelson Daybreak was thrilled to see construction begin on the Skate Park in Rosemount last week. Thanks to generous support from the Government of BC, Columbia Basin Trust and the local community, the funds are in place to complete a fabulous park.
Our immediate concern is to purchase pigment to colour the concrete. This will cost $20,000. As well as making the park look better and more dynamic, colour adds perspective for riders and increases safety.
As July 31 is the deadline to make the decision on colouring the concrete your pledges towards this project will help us to make the right decision.
If you’d like to contribute, please contact me by phone or email. You may also contact Nelson Skate Park nelsonskatepark.com for more information. With the park slated to open on Oct. 1 (well ahead of schedule!), this concentrated, last fundraising effort is already picking up steam—with significant contributions coming in from various community members and organizations.
The skatepark initiative began 11 years ago with numerous locations being considered before its home at Art Gibbon’s Park in Rosemont. At approximately 15,000 sq. ft, the park will offer a new recreational facility for all ages. Judging from early reports, it’ll also be one of the premier parks in the West Kootenay. Help make it happen. Make a contribution today and Colour the Park!
