Boarders grind new Munson skate park


     Skateboarders in the Village of Munson can practise their slides and grinds on the new skate park.

    The village just recently moved a few pieces of equipment they pulled out from last year to the outside area.
    With the purchase of more equipment this year, it has increased the size of the park.       
    Rex RecreActive of Edmonton designed and supplied the skateboard equipment for the village, the project  costing $45,000.
    Funding for the park was provided by a Municipal Sustainability Initiative Government grant.
    Originally the idea was to move the skateboard  equipment in and out of the arena as the seasons changed, but it became too much of a hassle.
  The equipment was installed at the south end of the Community Centre and with the help of the community and summer students, it was ready for skaters  to enjoy in July.
  The park offers skaters a 40x60 cement pad with grind rails, half pipes and jumps. A total of 10 different pieces help complete the park.
        C.A.O. for the Village of Munson Lyle Cawiezel said, “The community feedback has been positive.”
    The skateboard park is inspiring youth of all ages. On average, you will see 8-10 skaters practising their new moves  on a sunny summer day.
