It’s official, a brand-new concrete skatepark has arrived in Deux-Montagnes, to the delight of wheel sports enthusiasts! This new space is in Olympia Park, near the water games along the Chemin des Anciens.
Designed for skateboard, scooter, inline skating, and BMX type bike enthusiasts, from beginner to intermediate level, the skatepark also provides a great experience for advanced users. It is notably composed of a quarter moon, a funbox (box with a flat top equipped with a ramp and a small staircase), a grindbox (box with a flat top) and a ramp.
“This new park, particularly eagerly awaited by teenagers, enhances our offer of recreational and sports activities in Deux-Montagnes. The facilities allow our young people to practice their favorite sport on wheels in a safe environment, which is arranged so that they evolve in their respective level while having fun. » said Denis Martin, Mayor of Deux-Montagnes
More than a place to practice wheel sports!
Several benefits while playing are attributed to this new space: it is a place of meeting and socialization where one develops agility, sense of balance and coordination. It also encourages young people to use judgment and assess the risks of their maneuvers, according to their skill level.
Of course, the City of Deux-Montagnes specifies that it is crucial that users respect their level of skill and it strongly invites each of them to wear protective equipment, such as a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads and hand guards. As for the skatepark installations, the products have been designed in such a way as to avoid any injury.
