Moose Jaw’s skate park will be closed for roughly a month this fall as worn asphalt surfaces are replaced.

Bob Craig, design and development technician for the City of Moose Jaw’s parks and recreation department, said construction crews are scheduled to begin work on Sept. 10.

For the next month, the park, located at the corner of Ninth Avenue Northwest and MacDonald Street West, will be closed and barricaded as the work is undertaken.

Craig said it was time to replace the current surface as it was showing the wear and tear of more than a decade of use.

“It’s been there since the skate park opened,” he said. “It’s basically reached the end of its life cycle.”

    As far as I am concerned the city needs to concentrate on our very poor streets and sidewalks and not a skate park which can wait. And they say they want to keep the tourists here, well work on more important stuff like our poorly deteriated street's and sidewalks you FOOLS
