Rotary Club of Trail in full support of skate park

"The Rotary Club of Trail is one of many long-standing sponsors that encourages and supports the construction of a skate park in Trail."

The Rotary Club of Trail is one of many long-standing sponsors that encourages and supports the construction of a skate park in Trail for children and youth.

We support this project because we feel an investment in a skate park is an investment in our children, youth and community.  Anyone who has had the opportunity to travel the Kootenays, BC, Canada and/or participate in international travel has observed that skate parks are as common as hockey rinks, baseball diamonds, swimming pools and other key facilities that contribute to the fabric of a healthy and active community.

While there is an abundance of information pointing to wide-spread individual, business and community support for this park (e.g. 2003 Parks and Recreation Master Plan and www.skatetrail.com), the City has elected to survey our community.  This is an opportunity.  If you are contacted, please take time to share your thoughts regarding the need for this park and where you would like to see it.  If you are not contacted, we encourage you to stop by City Hall, ask for a copy of the survey and let your voice be heard. Our current council and recent councils have invested heavily in necessary economic development and infrastructure needs to ensure we have a viable community for decades to come.  It is our opinion that we are long overdue for capital investment for children and youth in the Home of Champions.
