Track to add to recreation area
“Our company has installed parks and tracks, not just here in Canada but in the States and many other parts of the world, even as far away as Hong Kong,” he said.
That worldwide reputation attests to the work the company performs, says Jim Dobbin of Tricklane Sk8board Association in Labrador West.
“There is a lot more room for young people to come out and enjoy the outdoors and get involved the healthy activities and there’s less chance for the boarders and bikers to be in each other’s way,” he said.
Meanwhile, Cooke sees this as a great step for the young people in the area. He says younger people want more of this kind of thing, not just organized events, but a place you can go alone or with friends, whenever you choose to.
The new pump track adds to an area that already features tennis courts, basketball court, ballfield, skateboard park, curling club and arena. These facilities/amenities cater to all ages and levels of ability.
This is what the pump track looks like when assembled.
