• Ensure a skatepark and skate     obstacles are included within the re- development of Britannia Renewal Master Plan.

Work with Britannia to provide a safe, clean and welcoming skateboard space. 


The Courts skatepark was founded in 2017 and has become a core part of the Vancouver skateboard culture and community. 

After learning in August 2021 a skatepark was not included in the re-development of Britannia and the Courts was going to be taken away, we decided to do something and got to work by:

Meeting with Britannia executives

Presenting at Britannia Committees & Boards

Creating and submitting video and written testimonials

Raising awareness at community events with info tables

Building renderings of what a skatepark "could" look like

Following this, we decided to create an official committee under Britannia by writing a Terms of Reference & Community Guidelines document. As of the March 9, 2022 Britannia Board of Directors meeting, we are now an official committee! 

Thank you to Britannia, we look forward to working together!

- Britannia Skateboard Committee

Obstacles are built by the community for the community allowing for all types of obstacles, skill building and creativity. 

There are lights allowing skateboarding at night. No other skatepark in Metro Vancouver has dedicated lights!

Obstacles are moveable allowing for all skill levels!

Everyone is welcome no matter what your age or skill level.

It has become a social space that welcomes people through events and community engagement. 


• Maintain and improve obstacles at the Courts in collaboration with the skateboard community

• Collaborate with other community groups on events and workshops

• Act as a liaison for Britannia to solve and prevent any problems

• Provide feedback on the future of Courts within the re-development
