Skatepark in Northbrookready to roll

The construction for the new skatepark in Northbrook will begin the first week of August, and is expected to take 3-4 weeks, with the opening of the facility sometime in September. Cash donations from private citizens and businesses are needed to complete Phase 1, which will include not only a unique boomerang shaped skatepark, but also a children’s playground and basketball hoops.

This project is possible through donations from the Ontario Trillium Foundation as well as the Lions Club of Land O’ Lakes Inc and the Township of Addington Highlands. In addition, numerous suppliers and contractors have donated many “in-kind services”.


A permanent outdoor donor board has been erected at the Lions Hall to acknowledge contributions. Cash or in-kind donations of $100-499 will be acknowledged with a bronze engraved plaque, $500-$999 will be silver and $1000 or more gold.

Anyone wishing to donate may make cheques out to the Township of Addington Highlands with the notation "donation for skatepark" and mail to Addington Highlands Township, Box 89, Flinton, ON, K0H 1P0. Charitable tax receipts will also be issued for any amount over $10. For more information please contact Tracy Yeo (336-1808), Ken Hook (336-3211) or Marg Wood at the township office (336-2286).
