Vanderhoof got its very own skateboard park and the inauguration ceremony was held on August 7.
The skateboard park is located on Stewart Street East, opposite the Vanderhoof Aquatic Centre which was opened this year as well.
Mayor Gerry Thiessen thanked the sponsors for their contribution, some of which included the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, the Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund, Northern Development Initiative Trust, Vanderhoof Kinsmen and our local skaters club that helped during the development of the park.
The actual cost of the skateboard park is approximately $482,000 and was built by New Line Skateparks Inc.
Skaters of all age-groups were ready to use the park on the first day of its opening.
Below are some photos from the event.
