The Youth for Christ Portage chapter has designated a portion of its facility to become its new indoor skatepark - equipped with ramps, quarter pipes and rails.
“We’ve been thinking about having some kind of indoor skate park for a while,” explains Art Schroeder, YFC Portage la Prairie executive director. “There isn’t a whole lot available in Portage for the winter months and you can have a long winter, so we decided we would utilize some of the space we have to start an indoor skatepark.”
YFC purchased a mobile skatepark kit that is meant to be assembled and reassembled with ease, and have already started setting up some ramps and rails. The facility also has several boards and helmets on site available for use.
