EY Skate Loft

The EY Skate Loft is a private indoor skatepark, which has been made possible by the hard work of Team EY and their supporters and is the brainchild of Everett Maclean, Team EY skateboarder and local grassroots community activist.

Everett Maclean & Nick Pierre designed the skatepark (with help from Steve Kutsopolis on the mini-ramp) and consulted with EY skaters and friends throughout the construction process. The skatepark was entirely built by Team EY and volunteers and was completed in October 2010. The EY Skate Loft is expected to open to the public in winter 2010 - a date is yet to be set.

The skatepark includes an amazing mini-ramp and a street area. The mini-ramp is 23' wide 4' high with 5’ & 6’ extentions. The street area is in an 'L' shape with a bank in one corner flowing into a hip/quaterpipe that opens up into a wide street area with a manny pad, ledges and a flat bar, ending with a wide bank with a 2 1/2' quarterpipe in the middle and wallride off to the side.
