PRO Excellence in Design Award
Parks & Recreation Ontario
We're proud to announce that the Isaac Riehl Memorial Skatepark has won an Excellence in Design Award from Parks & Recreation Ontario.
The award recognizes recognizes "the outstanding achievements of individuals and organizations that have enhanced the quality of life for Ontario's citizens. These awards showcase the very best of recreation and parks and also serve to draw attention to the importance and benefits of recreation for healthy people, vibrant communities and sustainable environments."
Located in Pelham, ON, this special project had an outpouring of community support from its inception. The skatepark is named for Isaac Riehl, a Pelham skateboarder who tragically died after being struck by a car while skateboarding in 2013.
The Isaac Riehl Memorial Skatepark received an Aviva Community Fund grant and could not have been possible without the hard work of many volunteers.
The Award will be presented on March 26th at the 2014 PRO Educational Forum and Trade Show at the Sheraton on the Falls in Niagara Falls.
