Help fund the underpass park

Date: March 10, 2014 Author: Simon McCaffrey Categories: Local Inititives

Toronto is in dire need of a sheltered skatepark with lights. Thing is it already has one but the City Of Toronto botched the layout, ground, and ramps so it is time to let skateboarders take over with the help from the Toronto Skateboard Committee and approval of the city to build something new.
