Walpole Island Skatepark

Let’s go explore the skatepark at Walpole Island First Nation.

It’s one of the first things you see when you drive over the bridge and enter the reservation.

There are all sorts of ledges to grind.

The quarter pipe is a little taller than I would like it to be. This park is made for advanced skaters though.

I love the political graffiti on it.

It says “Idle No More” and has a picture of a turtle on it which brings up the image of Turtle Island, an important creation story in First Nation Culture.

WI rail

It has a traditional rail to grind on,

I really enjoyed skating here yesterday afternoon and will definitely skate this park again when I am in the area next.

Hope to see you there!
