Congratulations to Erin Toews—winner of the Summerland Skate Shirt Design Contest.

Erin won a donated skateboard from Freeride Boardshop. Interior Ink Works generously donated $1000 worth of t-shirts. The fundraising skate shirts will debut at the Summerland Festival of Lights on November 25th and will sell for $20.00 each.

Facts About the New Summerland Skatepark

The new location will be a safe, open and visible section of the Summerland Secondary School playfield. Skateparks encourage youth to be stewards of their community and mentoring programs will be created. Skateparks help to improve physical activity rates among youth while creating a positive space for social interactions and well-being.

Check out our website to see details and the final skatepark design. 

A Summerland Skatepark Donation Program is now underway and provides an opportunity for individuals and businesses to donate funds to contribute to the building of a new Skatepark in Summerland.

Donating is easy! Make an online donation of any quantity or donate in person at Municipal Hall. Donations are tax deductible and income tax letters will be issued.

Please support this project for our community - buy a skate shirt or make a donation to the Summerland Skatepark today!

If you require further information regarding the Skatepark Donation Program please contact Municipal Hall or email
