*Concept design for the indoor skatepark*
The culture and activity is often seen as destructive or criminal, however, skateboarding is profoundly enriching. It teaches life skills such as perseverance, critical thinking and requires exceptional dedication to master the most basic of skills. There is no cheating in skateboarding.
From beginner to advanced, from young to not so young, the indoor skatepark will be a positive space that promotes recreation while organically growing community.
A proper place to skateboard indoors is an essential service.
The park will be budget friendly and open year round for skateboards, scooters and roller skates.
We will have outreach nights, specialty nights, lessons, contests, video premiers, and will be available for public use.
Several places in Saskatoon have been scouted and analyzed that would be ideal locations for the park.
Developments are ongoing while we continue to raise awareness as well as the funds necessary for such an operation.
We hope to open in the fall 2021.
The Antioch Community Centre will be a multifaceted space with 3 main components located in Warman.
We envision the Centre being common ground for The Valley area;
A place for people to congregate and collaborate.
Where civilians, businesses, churches and the City of Warman all work shoulder to shoulder to create a difference in the Valley Area.
The ACC is a one of a kind project and there is nothing of this nature or scope in Saskatchewan.
Warman’s Recreational Manager Paul Mcgonigal has been advocating for the Centre as well as advising us in our efforts. The City of Warman responded well to our presentation in February 2020 and is now considering a financial partnership.
The likelihood of this arrangement depends greatly on corporate sponsorship and business donations; this is where your organization is able to play an essential part.
The dream building for the Community Centre is the old Super Valu in Warman. 520 Central St In Warman, SK. It is owned by the Investor Group Millennium 3 and represented by Fortress Realty.
The building is 15780 Sq. ft. And the lease is $17,752 per month plus utilities. The location is ideal as is the open concept of the building.
Due to all that has transpired over the past year we understand that our desired time-line may be delayed;
However, we feel called to push onward in order to provide a safe place for the youth of our community.
The mandatory isolation we are all experiencing is resulting in a perhaps even greater need for in-person interaction and facilities that produce community.
We are working diligently to open either location as soon as possible.
