CENTRAL Neighborhood Hub

Just over 4 years ago, the old Vitality juice facility was transformed into a place for youth to congregate in a safe environment. The Medicine Hat Skate Association was the main component in it, building an indoor skatepark. Medican, a major sponsor fueled by an unmeasureable amount of volunteerism created a thriving place for people and small groups to connect. Since inception many different organizations have made the building home. GX dance studio, a boxing club, work out gym and Gas City Rollers to name a few. The collapse of this building will have a tragic impact to our community. Hopefully we can come together to rebuild or relocate.

    that picture angle sure shows the cave-in devastation. Wow. And no-one was hurt!

    Gladly no one was injured but still a hard pill to swallow for Medicine Hat youth and skaters across southern Alberta. Here’s hoping Central will rise again from the wreckage soon!

    I was so shocked to hear of the collapse of the skatepark. My son loved going there and it was nice to know he was in a safe place. Perhaps the old walmart building would be a suitable place to relocate??

    There’s some great ideas floating around about re-building or re-locating. Some people have suggested the old Walmart or the old Canadian Tire… those both would be amazing locations I think.

    I totally wanted to shred that park! 🙁
    I want a time machine now!
    That looked like an amazing park, who here has skated it?
