Ardrossan Skateboard Park
Based upon community feedback through an in person workshop led by New Line Skateparks and two online surveys, the final design has been selected for the new Skateboard Park in Ardrossan. Construction is set to begin in September 2020 and will wrap up in the late Fall.
The new skateboard park will provide an additional gathering space for youth in the community to be active outdoors. It will be approximately half the size of the existing skatepark at Millennium Place.
