Our home town has a park!
The Thomas Haney Youth Action Park features approximately 17,000 square feet of unique modern plaza and bowl terrain tied directly into a busy British Columbia public schoolyard. In addition to serving the local skateboarding and BMX community, the park also doubles as an outdoor ‘amphitheatre-style’ performance space and casual socializing area. The project is the first active schoolyard skatepark development in Canada and has captured the attention of cities around the world attempting to incorporate progressive public space for youth in non-traditional settings. The park is in the schoolyard of Thomas Haney Secondary School, 23000 116th Ave, in Maple Ridge.
