Public input sought on Shaw Millennium Park operating hours

You are invited to share your input on operating hours at Shaw Millennium Park, North America’s largest free outdoor skate park. The park, located on 9th Ave and 11th St S.W., was established in 2000 and has more than 75,000 square feet of skateable surfaces.

Visit our online survey, open from August 6-18, or visit The City Events Vehicle at Shaw Millennium Park on August 8 (3-8 p.m.), 16 (6-10 p.m.) or 17 (12-5 p.m.).

The park has historically operated as a 24-hour park since it opened 14 years ago and the opportunity is available to reevaluate the hours.

From September 2013 to June 2014 the park operated under temporary regional hours closing at 11 p.m. and opening at 5 a.m. daily. The park returned to normal operating hours on June 1, 2014.

Citizen engagement will take place through the first two weeks of August with a final decision in regards to operating hours made in the fall of 2014. Learn more at
