Topaz Park: Skate and Bike Parks

Illustrations of skate and bike icons with the project title in the centre, which reads Topaz Park Skate & Bike Parks.

The City of Victoria is working with a team of consultants to design and build a new skateboard/all-wheels park and bike skills park in Topaz Park.

The final design is approved and available to view.

This project is part of the first phase of renovations to Topaz Park that are guided by the Topaz Park Improvement Plan, which was adopted by Council in 2018 following a year of public engagement with the community.

The new skate park will create a space that is inviting and suitable for all skill levels and riders, with a beginner’s area where people can safely learn and advanced areas for more experienced riders. The new bike park will provide a fun and challenging riding experience for all skill levels with a series of paved pump tracks and other features.

Construction is scheduled to begin in fall 2021 and be complete in summer 2022.

What we engaged on

This project builds on extensive community engagement completed through the Topaz Park Improvement Plan process and input from the skateboarding and biking community. This feedback played an important role in creating the designs for the skate and bike parks.

Throughout the design phase of this project, we worked closely with an advisory committee of local skate and bike community leaders to help us make important decisions about skill level, features and terrain.

How we got here

In 2017-18, the City worked with the community to create the Topaz Park Improvement Plan. This long-term plan will guide improvements to Topaz Park over 10 years, including renovating existing park infrastructure, adding new types of amenities, and updating the park to support broad community use.

The Topaz Park Improvement Plan was approved by Council in 2018. In 2021-22, the City is investing nearly $8 million to construct the skateboard park and bike park and replace the artificial turf sports field as part of the long-term renewal plan for the park.
