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.

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