Providing safe and active spaces is seen as a core component of healthy development of local youth.

Skateboarding / Ramp Sports are Here to Stay – these sports have demonstrated sustained longevity and have become a mainstream pursuit among youth and young adults.

OUR GOAL & MISSION
WHAT IS OUR UNDERLYING PHILOSOPHIES / VALUES?
• ACTIVE place for children and youth
• Fits with the ‘active’ community lifestyle of Tobermory
• An ‘opportunity’ for young people;
keeping youth interested in their community and staying in their community
• A social, spontaneous, non structured space to ‘play’

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS TO BEGIN WITH?

• For kids and youth – an opportunity; a choice
• Also for the whole community and tourists
• Family friendly
• Building a future – part of building regenerative Tobermory
• Increasing the appeal of Tobermory to families with children
• Its part of our future


WHO IS THIS FOR?

• Anyone who rides a bike, has a skateboard, roller blades, draws a hop scotch, trys something different, enjoys watching kids have fun; owns a ball!
• “No age” focus is most inclusive


WHAT IS IT GOING TO DO FOR YOUTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE TO ENRICH THEIR LIVES?


• Makes youth feel part of the community
• Promotes an active outdoor lifestyle
• Promotes civic benefit
• Gives youth choices
• Increases appeal to raising families


IMAGINE THE BENEFITS!

Youth and young adults playing active sports together; mastering new skills;
families spending an evening together at the community recreation park;
laughter and friends;
youth take pride and visitors find more active sport choices.
