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.
