The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2023 to 2030.

Increasing support for the construction of public skate parks has induced the governments to take initiatives for such construction. Therefore, the government is putting efforts into the construction of appropriate skate parks with proper design and standards.

The park was a host for the 2017 Canadian Skateboarding Championship and is also expected to host all future national and international skateboarding events.
