Algoport Skate & BMX Park

skatepark

After many years of discussion and continued support from residents and enthusiasts, Port Colborne's City Council approved the building of a "One of a Kind" Marine themed Skate & BMX Park! The park was designed by a subcommittee of the Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC), known as the Sk8 Park Group and Jim Barnum of Spectrum Skatepark Creations, along with Landinc Architects.The design followed along Port Colborne's marine heritage and replicates a laker passing under a bridge and portrays a compass to navigate youth.

The name "Algoport" is in recognition of sponsorship from Algoma Central Corporation. In September 2009, the original Algoport ship broke in half and sank in heavy seas while under tow in the South China Sea south of Japan, in 5,000 meters of water.

Thank you to: Patterned Concrete, V. Gibbons Contracting, DSW Welding, Glenmount Memorials, Landinc Landscape Architects and Spectrum Skatepark Creations.
