Be part of Burford’s next BIG community project!!

The 2023/2024 Burford Skate Park Improvement Project

WHY: For youth who don’t play organized sports, skateboarding & scootering is a way to get active outdoors, close to home, with no sports fees. Having a quality park close to home is incredibly important!  The Burford Skate Park is desperately in need of improvements for safety reasons (rough pavement, cracks) as well as a larger space with ramps for beginner to experienced riders.

WHEN: Planning and fundraising is taking place in 2022, with construction of Phase 1 slated for late summer 2023 or 2024. We are working hard to try and make Phase 1 & Phase 2 happen at the same time!Type your paragraph here.

In Partnership with:

WHAT: The site will stay in roughly the same location at the Burford Community Centre Park. The 8,000 sq ft space will include a new concrete surface, more ramps and skate features, and a seating/viewing area. The safety need for separation between the playground and skate park area will also be addressed.

Financial donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt from the County of Brant.
