Past and Present Projects
Shannon Park Skate Park - located on MacCauley Street just north of Montreal Street.
Due to the community’s request for a recreational facility suitable for older youth and young adults, CRNC has completed an 8, 000 sq. ft. skate park in Shannon Park. The skate park is suitable for skateboarders, cyclists, rollerbladers and push scooters. This new facility provides a healthy recreational opportunity to youth and young adults in the community, as well as providing a safe alternative to skate board usage on streets and private property.
The Skate Park was completed in December of 2016. CRNC and the community are very grateful to all who donated - every dollar helped.
