Colwood hosted Music in the Park performances on Friday evenings during the summer of 2022 to bring neighbours together to enjoy live, outdoor music and food while spending time in some of our lovely local parks.
Opportunities to help enhance the West Shore Skatepark in support of youth in Colwood
Events like this provide the opportunity to support local initiatives that benefit people in our community. We'll be working to find interesting ways to use these events to encourage residents to sponsor cool features at the West Shore Skatepark that is planned for West Shore Parks & Recreation.
While a skatepark may sound like it’s just a place to play, we know that many of our societal challenges are best addressed by supporting our youth. The West Shore Skatepark will create a space where youth can be themselves, let their guard down, disconnect from unhealthy habits and reconnect to active, social, outdoor activity.
The West Shore Skatepark Coalition and West Shore Parks and Recreation have moved this project forward in amazing ways over the past several years: secured a site at West Shore Parks and Recreation, funded and selected a design with community engagement and municipal support, earned municipal funding commitments, raised significant funds toward skate park construction and took advantage of federal grant opportunities. The City of Colwood has allocated almost $100,000 to construction of the skate park. Watch for opportunities to sponsor added features that will make the park an incredible place for youth in our community.
