The Village of Cumberland is excited to announce that construction of the much anticipated Skatepark and Jump Park is moving ahead in spring 2017. The new skatepark and jump park will be built in Village Park adjacent to the Dog Park and Wellington Colliery Trail. The project is a collaboration between the Village and the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) and United Riders of Cumberland (UROC).
The 5200 square foot custom concrete skatepark will have a street section, a bowl and a mini-ramp. The construction contract has been awarded to the Comox firm Radius Contracting Inc., a company with experience building skateparks throughout BC and the rest of Canada.
Meanwhile, for the Jump Park a design-build contract has been awarded to Squamish-based Dream Wizards Events Ltd. Dream Wizards will be responsible for the final in-field design, shaping and grading of four dirt jump trails (beginner through to expert in difficulty rating), a pump track and a run bike trail.
The total value of the project is $465,000. The majority of project funding has come from the Village, as well as additional funding from the UROC and the CCSS via fundraising events, grants, and in kind donations. Construction is slated to begin in late March with a target completion date of early summer 2017. A grand opening event will be held upon completion – more information will be shared closer to the date.
