Skateboarders have a new place to ride, try tricks and hang out.
The skatepark at Harewood Centennial Park is now open for use and is already busy with skaters.
The park includes a kidney-shaped bowl and a “street-style plaza” with eight types of features, according to the City of Nanaimo website. First Nations artists collaborated to create artwork that was painted onto the concrete surface at the skatepark.
The skatepark budget was $779,000.
