The East York Skatepark is a small community park, which has been made possible by the hard work of Team EY and the involvement of local East York skateboarders and their supporters.
Working since 1998 with local councilors and dealing with mega-city political changes, the skaters of East York finally secured money from the city in 2005 and the park was completed April 2007 (with an 'Official Opening' June 23rd, 2007).
Jim Barnum (the lead designer) and Eric Meunier (who did all the smooth concrete work), worked with EY skaters throughout the construction process and created a park that provided the local skaters with the terrain they wanted.
The result is a street-focused skatepark bordering on plaza style and a tight 5’ to 6’ figure-eight bowl. The street area consists of a 'Pier 7' manual pad, 'Commerce Court' style multiple 3-sets, some larger stair sets, various rails and ledges, different sized hubbas, a long banked ledge (“The Wave”) and two granite caped ledges: one down the double set and one over a grass gap.
The East York Skatepark is always busy with locals and has given new life to the area; bringing old school EY skaters out of retirement and breeding plenty of new rippers who are just tearing the place up!
The local skaters continue to be involved with the skatepark: organizing annual spring cleanup weekends, mural paintings, and even some concrete work - building a new wallride and a polejam. The community has also come together to remember East York Skatepark local, Sebastian “Sabby” Perez, by hosting memorial fund raisers for his family and dedicating several mural paintings to his memory.
This skatepark has been about EY community involvement since day one and continues to be…so bring your board, forget your shirt and love EY.
