A proposed skate park in Enchant could cost more than $130,000.
On Feb. 10, Municipal District of Taber council accepted as information a package from Brady Howg, a 13-year-old Enchant resident who, back in September, inquired about the possibility of M.D. council moving forward with a skate park as a recreation project for the hamlet.

Howg’s follow-up request included estimates on the pouring of a concrete pad on which the park would be placed as well as the equipment itself. The total amount of the estimate for both was $138,906.98, including $109.566.98 for two-phase construction of the skate park from the Canadian Ramp Company and $29,340 for construction of a 54’x70’ concrete pad with a smooth finish.

Equipment for the park would include:

Phase one

seven quarter pipe sections; one extra deck; one two-foot wide planter; three bank ramp (wedge) sections; and one kinked round grind rail.

Phase two

three half pipe sections; one eight-foot grind rail; and one concrete skate bench.

“I still think getting a skate park is a good idea and I hope we can get it this year,” Howg indicated in his letter. Following discussion, council accepted the follow-up and estimates as information.
