Iqaluit Skatepark

 

 

The Skatepark is now closed for the season.

Thank-you for another great summer! 

* Did you know that in 2016, we had more than 2000 visits to the Skatepark in only 4 months? *

This is a first-class, indoor facility for skateboarding and inline skating, which is operated seasonally from May-September in the curling rink. The Skatepark – equipped with a half-pipe, 12-foot quarter pipe, pyramid, flat bank, rails and more – is designed for skaters who are just starting out, as well as advanced skaters who are looking for a challenge. Skaters can look forward to competitions, BBQ’s, Skate Camp and other special events throughout the season. The Skatepark is also available for rent for birthday parties and other events. All riders 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult and full protective equipment is required for all patrons.
