The Stratford Skatepark
The Town of Stratford, with the collaboration of the Stratford Skatepark Steering Committee, isbuilding a skatepark for the youth in our community. We are currently inviting all Stratford, Charlottetown and surrounding area businesses, groups/organizations and individuals to help build a park that will meet the needs of our growing and vibrant community.
The facility will be a multi-use skatepark with features for skateboarding, in-line skating, and BMX biking. As well, there will be landscaping features and benches to ensure the park blends with the surroundings and has comfortable places for all to enjoy the activity.
Skateboarding provides a low cost opportunity for young people to explore unstructured recreational activity. In the past several years a growing number of skateparks have emerged in various communities throughout the Maritimes.
The Town of Stratford has budgeted $150,000 in 2015 for this project and is providing the land and the ongoing maintenance of the park. The Skatepark Steering Committee is currently in the process of working with other levels of government, applying for grants, connecting with service clubs and businesses, and participating in direct fundraising activities to raise the additional funds required to build the park.
What can I do to help?
Title Sponsorship of the Stratford Skatepark
Would you like the honor of naming the Stratford Skatepark? The Skatepark Steering Committee is looking for a title sponsor of the Stratford Skatepark. This individual/business will have the naming rights to the park. This title will be displayed in all publications regarding the park as well as the park signage located on the property. The Skatepark Steering Committee is now accepting proposals for review for Title Sponsorship of the Skatepark.
If you would like more information or to discuss title sponsorship, please contact Duane Pineau at 902-367-3294.
Donation of Monetary Funds, Materials or In-Kind Services
The Skatepark Steering Committee is in need of donations to fund the construction of the park. This could include monetary donations, as well as materials or in-kind services. Any contributions from individuals, businesses, services groups or organizations would be greatly appreciated.
A sponsorship plaque will be located in the completed park to recognize significant donations. All donations will be identified by 4 categories:
Gold Level: $5,000 to $9.999
Silver Level: $2,500 to $4,999
Bronze Level: $1,000—$2,499

Purchase a Paver Stone on our Skatepark Community Walkway
The Stratford Skatepark will feature a Community Walkway that will be blended into the landscaping of the Skatepark. Individuals, organizations and businesses are encouraged to purchase an engraved paving stone that will be included in the walkway. Have your name engraved for all to see that you were a proud supporter of Stratford Youth. The stones will be visible for years to come by residents of the community.
