Incorporated in 2009, the Lethbridge Skateboard Association (LSA) has been gaining momentum as a non-profit group promoting skateboarding in the City of
Lethbridge. The LSA was organized with the following purposes:
• To provide public and private facilities for skateboarders to pursue their sport
• Increase public awareness of skateboarding
• Provide a unified voice for skateboarding in the City of Lethbridge
Currently, we have been working towards the construction of a new skatepark for the City. Our success continues to grow as the LSA creates partnerships with
other groups, companies and entities in the city such as The Mortgage Centre and The CauseWay. Our goal is to raise enough money to fund the construction of
this new facility.We are so close to seeing this goal be achieved. The new location will be on the corner of Mayor Magrath Dr. S. and Parkside Dr. S. adjacent to
the Henderson Ice Arena. The design is nearly complete and we are excited to share this facility with the skateboarders, inline skaters, scooter riders, bmx cyclists
and even those in wheelchairs! The facility will be a free public facility. With help from supporters such as the Mortgage Center and programs like The CauseWay,
our goal of raising the required amount for this park will be achieved sooner. There is still a possibility this park could be constructed this year! For that we are
grateful and excited.
When the facility is complete, the LSA will use this facility to host events and contests to showcase the talents of our city’s skateboarding youth.
