The City is improving the playground and adding a skate spot in Woburn Park – Scarborough. A skate spot is less than 600 m2 and includes skateable features, such as a single ramp or rail, that provide an introductory skateboarding experience for local users. The playground improvements are part of an ongoing program to enhance playgrounds and play spaces across the city.

  • September 2024: Community engagement (online survey)
  • October 2024 to April 2025: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Late Summer 2025: Construction starts
  • Late Fall 2025: Construction complete, playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Skate Spot

The Skateboard Strategy provides tools and recommendations for the Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan to help guide future investments in skateboarding infrastructure across the city.

A skate spot is less than 600 m2, services local users within walking distance and is suited for all skill levels, with a focus on beginner and intermediate users. West Lodge Park and Smithfield Park are examples of parks that have a skate spot.

The location of the skate spot in Woburn Park is to be determined.
