Victoria Jason Park - Skate Park Renewal

Victoria Jason Park is a busy hub of the community featuring soccer fields, baseball diamonds, a play structure, large tobogganing hill, and walking paths. The skate park is showing signs of aging and damage from vandalism. The City is seeking public input through a workshop and survey to gather feedback on which skate park obstacles are most desired when renovating the 13-year old skate park.

Engage

The busy Victoria Jason skate park has many users – we want to hear from you! We want to know what you like about the current skate park and which obstacles you would like to see in the future.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the park site October 28, 2017. About 14 people attended our public workshop. An online survey was available on this site until October 14, 2017 with a total of 90 completed surveys.

A public engagement summary and potential design will be shared on this site with an opportunity to provide comment in late 2017.

Participants in the engagement process will have an opportunity to see how their feedback was considered through a public engagement report which will be made available on this website in late 2017.

Background

Formerly known as Crocus Park, Victoria Jason Park was renamed in 2004 in honour of Transcona resident Victoria Jason, who was the first woman to kayak the Northwest Passage. The park is located in the Transcona neighbourhood across the street from two high schools – Murdoch MacKay Collegiate and Collège Pierre-Elliot Trudeau.

The skate park was built in 2004, with pre-fabricated concrete skateboard elements. In 2006, the skateboard park was expanded, adding some new modular steel skateboard elements to the site. The skate park renewal is a related project from the Transcona Parks project that involved public input through two open houses. The skate park was identified by residents as needing significant improvements. The once state-of-the-art facility now shows signs of aging and damage from vandalism. Changes in skate park design and modern best practices in construction have left the current skate park in need of updating.

The design and construction of this project is budgeted for $400,000. Funding for construction is subject to approval.
