THE THREE BATTLES SKATEPARK IS OPEN!
The Three Battles Skatepark is now open!
The student driven idea to create a safe place for the community of Manning’s youth to bike and skate was born less than one year ago and took flight through the “Enrichment Class” offered at Paul Rowe High School.
“We asked other students if they were interested in forming a group to see if we could build a park and met in our Enrichment class and afterschool” says Three Battles Skatepark Vice-Chair Aaron Johnson. Since September 2013 the group of students from grades five to nine have regularly met during the Enrichment Class and afterschool doing research, writing proposals, creating and giving presentations to organizations, fundraising, designing and planning.
It is hoped that many community members will enjoy the skatepark for years to come. Users are reminded to be safe and wear helmets when riding.
