PROJECT

SKATE.

FAREWELL TO THE PLAZA

 

aboutus

Project skate is a radio documentary and multimedia site created to tell the story of Vancouver’s iconic skateboard plaza and its eventual demise.

With the impending removal of the West Georgia street viaduct, the False Creek area will see an array of changes as the gentrification of Metro Vancouver progresses.

 

Our objective is to not only tell the story of the Skate Plaza itself but also of those that have been a part of its rich history.

ABOUT

THE

PLAZA

Vancouver’s Skate Plaza was built in 2004 and is one of the world’s first Street style plaza skate parks.

 

The Plaza was originally built by New Line Skate Parks and was in response to the increase in popularity of street skateboarding and the strictness of Downtown Vancouver against skateboarders.

 

The Plaza was named number 21 on the top-25 list of best skate parks in the world by Complex.
