Harbour Landing Skate Park

A dream come true

Regina, Saskatchewan

Dream Development had a vision for a skate park that would bring skateboarders and BMX bikers in Regina together in their new community of Harbour Landing. They wanted a park that complemented an existing playground, basketball court, and recreation area that also appealed to all ages and skill levels. They called on our Action Sport Group to design the city’s first “wheel friendly” skate plaza where regardless of the wheels you ride, you’re sure to have a great time.

The team used a robust planning and public consultation process to discover how the skate park could bring residents together. Lead designer Kanten Russell explains, "what we're trying to do is bring some of that urban aesthetic and downtown-feel, but put it in a place that's safe—that's made for skateboarding.”

We considered community needs, green design, and cold-climate conditions. The plaza is pedestrian friendly and is situated along a series of paths and parks that link two neighborhood subdivisions. The team chose design elements and materials that allowed for cost reductions, meaning the City could increase the overall size of the park.

This Stantec-designed skateboard park in Regina's Harbour Landing is a dream come true for the community.

<p>Jimmy Cao</p> <p>I wish there were more skate parks growing up and now seeing the developments in communities and having skate parks in the communities I think is a great thing.</p> <p>Kanten Russell</p> <p>By trying to pull in some of the urban elements that you’d find in a downtown area like Regina and put it into the skate plaza was the way that we could create something that was good for all ages, all skill levels, that could actually be skated right there in that development. We connected it with some of the pathways that lead to other areas of the community.</p> <p>Evan Hunchak</p> <p>We love working with Stantec; whether it’s municipal engineering or landscaping or even park design.</p> <p>Kanten Russell</p> <p>Some of the aesthetic ledges we put in there, we made them different heights; the flatbar, the a frame bank-to-bank feature, everything in there is something I think that could be used and is a little bit more user friendly than maybe some of the other parks.</p> <p>Evan hunchak</p> <p>If you’re looking for an amazing skate park, I think the one here in Harbour Landing is worth a visit. It’s definitely world class.</p> <p>Jimmy cao</p> <p>Its fun, you know, I like this park. I think the kids’ favourite feature of this park would probably be the banks on the side, well at least that’s my favourite feature.</p> <p>Tyson</p> <p>My favourite feature is the flatbar if you can see it in the background there, it’s just a mint rail.</p> <p>Matt</p> <p>Really good park, you could spend a couple hours here and not get bored.</p> <p>Evan hunchak</p> <p>There’s a lot of activities within this specific park that should be able to keep anyone from a toddler to an adult active and entertained.&nbsp;</p>
