KSM Skatepark update

Updates are being made at the KSM Skatepark to make the park more accessible for everyone to enjoy

Last November, a proposal was submitted to the District of Port Hardy Parks and Recreation Committee to

update the Kyle Scow Memorial (KSM) Skatepark’s out of date facilities. The committee is still investigating the

request, however, that hasn’t stopped progress from being made on the KSM Skatepark’s equipment to ensure

fun and safety for all ages and skill level of skaters. James Fisher, a long-time member of the Port Hardy

Skateboard Club, his father, William Fisher, and his brother, Billy Fisher, recently made alterations to the

skateboard box, which is a long square box made of wood that skaters ollie onto and ride across, before

ollieing back off onto the ground. (The ollie is a skateboarding trick where the rider and board leap into the air

without the use of the rider’s hands.)The box was originally just over 18 inches tall, and the men ended up

cutting off nine inches, making it more accessible for everyone to skate. Fisher has big plans for the KSM

Skatepark. “This is just a start,” and they’re planning to continue to “make progress, no matter what,” he said.
