 Covering a total area of over 44,000 square feet, The Plaza at The Forks
consists of a meticulously detailed world-class skateable sculpture plaza and
expansive modern bowl complex tied seamlessly into the heart of downtown
Winnipeg’s urban fabric.
Skateable terrain caters to beginners through pros with a myriad of ‘real street’
and transition influenced features split into two main areas:
Central Plaza: The 30,000 square foot Central Plaza features terrain
inspired by famous international skate spots in places such as San
Francisco, Barcelona, Japan and beyond. And, the main plaza area is
made up of a combination of various stair sets, banks, rails and ledges
set within a host of custom sculptures and other art pieces - the majority
of which are skateable.
Particular highlights include the notched custom tile vert wall, the “Magic
Carpet” - a super elevated steel ribbon track, granite capped ledges and
blocks, brick bank hip, and a series of small to large slappy ledges.
Bowl Complex: Separate and adjacent to the Central Plaza, lies a one
of a kind 8,500 square foot bowl unit combining traditional pool and
modern coping lines.
Walls begin at 5 feet and progress through a series of hips, elevators,
extensions, and a pump bump to a massive 17-foot cradle and 13 foot
over vert pocket. The bowl itself weighs 42,000 pounds.
The Skate Patrol: As a way to introduce visitors to The Plaza at The
Forks, The Forks Renewal Corporation is working together with SK8 to
provide “ambassadors” within the confines of the park.
The Patrol, all experienced skateboarders themselves, will tour the site
from noon until dusk daily and will work to educate skaters on the
etiquette of the park and create an atmosphere where inline skaters,
skateboarders and BMX riders all enjoy The Plaza harmoniously.
