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.
Be Part of Something Big and Donate:
While a portion of the budget will be covered by the County of Brant and a donation from the Burford Optimist Club, we need local fundraising dollars to complete the project!
