To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and support Public Health officials, the Town of Oakville has joined the Province of Ontario and Halton Region in declaring a State of Emergency. Facilities and parks remain closed. Only essential services are being delivered.
The town currently has four outdoor skateboard parks, with a fifth due to open in 2019.
Helmets must be worn. Additional personal protective equipment such as wrist guards, elbow pads and kneepads are recommended. The use of BMX or mountain bikes is prohibited.
Outdoor skateboard parks are open from 9 a.m. to dusk.
Visitors are encouraged to bring reusable or biodegradable containers to the park rather than plastic - if using plastic, please make use of the appropriate recycling container or take them home with you to dispose of in your blue bin.
