VPS Series donates skateparks to Montréal, Paris/Chelles, and Salt Lake City
Vans Park Series (VPS) have gifted three brand-new, skate-of-the-art skateparks to 3 cities around the world along their global tour.
These VPS-certified legacy parks (in Montréal, Canada, Paris/Chelles, France and Salt Lake City, USA) will become spaces to nurture and cultivate skating communities around the world.
The free, open-to-the-public skateparks have been in the works for the past year, in preparation for the 2019 Vans Park Series stops in Montréal, Paris/Chelles, and Salt Lake City.
“With these parks, we hope to continue to foster a legacy within skateboarding communities around the world. Our goal is to increase skateboarding participation and use these parks as both a local cultural hub, as well as a platform to foster progression and cultivate tomorrow’s talent.” – Bobby Gascon, Global Director of Actions Sports, Vans.
The skateparks are supported by Vans through ongoing programmes activities and maintenance, so everyone can fully enjoy the parks all year round.
In addition to the three new parks this year, there are two other skateparks donated by VPS in Malmö, Sweden (2016) and São Paulo, Brazil (2018). Vans also recently renovated the Vans Off The Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, USA, by upgrading the feature to meet VPS-certified specifications.
