<p><b>Katrina Shmitts</b>: This skate park came about as an initiative from a group of kids in the community, users of the skate park we had at the time. It was a much smaller skate park in another location in Caledonia. When we started out it was great; we had community consultations, everybody was very engaged. I think we quickly realized that we probably needed some very specialized skills for this type of project.</p> <p><b>Kanten Russell</b>: They really wanted us to come in and be the liaison between the county and the community in helping bridge that gap and be able to talk the language that the skateboarders were sharing about their dream design, their dream features.</p> <p><b>Jimmy Cao</b>: I think it's really good for the community. Kids come and hang out, skate, be active, stay out of trouble. Hopefully.</p> <p><b>Katrina Shmitts</b>: Stantec very kindly and generously brought in designers from California and they were phenomenal, just a ton of communication and engagement with the kids. Really hashed out the details of what this park should look like.</p>
