Lincoln Action Park

I went to the Design Workshop that Town of Lincoln Community Services staff put on today led by the consultant, Canada Ramp Company.

I was impressed with not only the number of Action Parks (skateboards, bike pump tracks etc) that they have designed throughout North America but also the variety of layouts, design features, and materials, the number of activities that people use these parks for, and the large range of ages enjoying them. These parks are great for getting people out exercising!

After the presentation the attendees broke out into four groups and cut out symbols representing components and design features from images that the consultants provided and pasted them on to a site plan grid. Afterward each group got to present their idea of what they would like to see in the Action Park.

Have a look at their website or Facebook page. Canadarampcompany.ca or https://www.facebook.com/canadianrampcompany/ and keep your eye on the newspaper and website and social media for further information and some preliminary designs.

Very exciting!
