Pasadena council will order the first stage of equipment for the town’s new skateboard park in the next few weeks.

Coun. Derrick Anthony told the other municipal representatives at Monday’s public meeting that ordering the equipment sooner rather than later means a savings to the town of about $7,800 thanks to a free shipping offer from the originating company.

The company, Canadian Ramp Co. in Ontario, can make the offer because Anthony said it is already shipping other pieces of equipment to the area.

Anthony said by delaying the order, the town could risk losing the offer so council made the motion to place it.

An area behind the community centre has been selected for the skateboard park.

Anthony said he hopes to have the skate park constructed by summer. It is being paid for by an overage from 2012 Come Home Year festivities.

Organizations: Canadian Ramp Co.

Geographic location: Pasadena, Ontario

    I think it's great that Pasadena is putting in a new skatepark but can't understand why they would waste money buying ramps rather then investing in a concrete park? I have skated all over the country and I have to admit that concrete parks are generally more fun and clearly last longer. They really should have taken a look at some parks that new line skateparks builds. Hopefully it ends up being half decent.

    Man, I was hoping with how Pasadena had a set skatepark amount, that maybe they'd pick another company besides the Canadian Ramp Company. They might have made a good park in Gander and decent ones in Marystown/Deer Lake; but their skateparks in Corner Brook and Stephenville are subpar. In addition, I can't imagine them sending ramps that are much different from CB/DL/SVille, since they assume a low percentage of people will be using more than one park. Regardless, I'm over the moon that another town in the area is getting a skatepark. The communities around here are catching up with the 21st century :)

    How refreshing--a community building something on its own, with no hands reaching out for government $$$$.....
