Skateboarders of all ages got a chance to have their say on Thursday night on a new skateboard park in Pointe-Claire.

A special meeting was held at Pointe-Claire city hall to show residents the potential design and to get feedback.

The $600,000 project has been in the works since 2013.

The previous Pointe-Claire skatepark was shut down to make way for an indoor pool project back in 2010.

“It’s worth it to get people active, exercising and having fun; who knows, it may get some people off of their iPads,” said Pointe-Claire Mayor John Belvedere.

Once completed, the skatepark will sit next to the Pointe-Claire Aquatic Centre.
