We are building more action sport parks across Waterloo to complement the popular flagship skatepark in uptown, on Father David Bauer Drive.

We’ve selected these locations for new parks:

  • Albert McCormick Community Centre
  • RIM Park
  • Stork Family YMCA/John M. Harper Branch Library

Please see the news feed for an update on the Albert McCormick Central Plaza official opening!


RIM Park Bike Park and Skate Spot

We are building two new action sport parks at RIM Park.

This fall (2021), we will begin construction on the RIM Park West Bike Park.


This is a map of the location at RIM Park where the bike park will be built.



Construction for the Skate Spot at RIM Park East will begin in 2023. Consultants used input from the community to draft these proposed designs.

    Councillor Vieth and city staff officially opened the Albert McCormick Central Plaza on July 16, 2021. The plaza includes:

    • A 5,000 square foot skatepark
    • Splash court
    • Bankshot TM basketball court
    • Climbing structure
    • Gathering and seating areas

    Check out the photo gallery for pictures and video taken during the official opening.

    In addition to these new recreational amenities, the city’s arts and culture team will hire a local artist to design and install two community benches in the space. These benches will resemble seating, like a couch or chesterfield, which one might find in a home, and the artist will base the design on feedback received from the community.


    Parking

    There is plenty of parking available for visitors to the library, the community centre and the arena. We built a new parking lot near the library entrance off Glenelm Crescent, so visitors can now park in that new lot, in the original parking lot behind the facility, and along Parkside Drive. Here is a rendering of the available parking in case it helps to visualize the space.
