Mount Royal, September 27, 2021 – The Mount Royal Town Council awarded the construction contract for the new skatepark at its regular meeting tonight. The project had been put on hold earlier this year due to soaring construction prices. The work will be entrusted to Tessier Récréo-Parc Inc., a company with vast experience in this field.
By cancelling its first call for tenders in the spring and waiting a few months, Mount Royal saved approximately $450,000. The contract awarded tonight is valued at $1.1M.
The existing skatepark turned 20 years old in 2021. Use for this type of infrastructure has changed significantly over time and Mount Royal’s facilities were no longer suitable. Next year, the Town plans to offer its residents a new, modern layout, featuring concrete obstacles suitable for skateboarders, BMX and mountain bike riders.
Under the terms of the contract, Tessier Récréo-Parc Inc. must demolish the old skatepark by November 1, 2021. The new skatepark, still located in Danyluk Park, should be ready by summer 2022.
