There’s a noticeable change at BGC Kawarthas – our new skatepark has become a destination for youth on their skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes. For the first time, these sports have a permanent home in Kawartha Lakes!
The new park is compatible with scooters, BMX bikes and skateboards, and will be available seven days a week for Club participants and the public as well.
“The cement was barely dry when more youth began to arrive at the Club, creating opportunities to engage with our staff and other youth services programs and increasing our regular attendance to record levels,” says Amy Terrill, Executive Director of BGC Kawarthas. “We look forward to learning more about the youth who bring their skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes to the park so that we can offer them additional support in a safe and respectful environment.”
