skateboarding in nova scotia!

we are off to nova scotia in a week, really looking forward to it all. just wondering if it is worth my 15year old packing his skateboard, he is pretty keen on it, but i it allowed, and are there any parks anywhere? We go to Wofville, Lunenburg, Digby, Shubenacadie and somewhere on the sunrise trail? Thanks...

Hi sazza60"

I have a 15 year old who is also into skateboarding, when it's not the electric guitar, but that's another story altogether isn't it ?

Glad your coming, the weather has been fantastic here lately.

I would allow your son to bring along his skateboard. Skate parks are becoming increasingly popular and he'll find places to use it.

From your list, I can only account Lunenburg, for having a skatepark in town. This is not to say the other towns do not, I have just not been to them, or know for certain. There are two new ones under construction here in Chester and Mahone Bay, but not yet completed. The Halifax Commons has a very good one--quite extensive and challenging...Be sure he has his helmet and I'm pretty sure he'll find places, as they skate in some unusual spots.

regards.

If you or someone else may be interested, here in Sydney we have two skateboard parks. One in the "shipyard area" and one in "whitney pier".

back from a great trip to nova scotia! Just a recommendation to skteboarders on lighthouse trail, call in to the La Have bakery and upstairs is a guy making beautiful boards and a half pipe to skate on! A really pleasant surprise for our son.

thanks sazza"

My son just informed me of that...good to know as we always seem to get his gear at West 49 and A1 Skateboards in Halifax.

Did your son by chance get to the skate park at the Halifax Commons ?
