While riding my bike though Riverside Park last night, I noticed that the blacktop pad has been recently seal coated. A few minutes later, I got the official word from these skateboarders that the temporary skate park will open sometime this week.

Cecilia Cornejo was capturing video of the process. More about her work in this Nfld News article: Northfield Skate Park Coalition becomes subject of documentary.
May 26 update: All the equipment is in place and was evidently in use last night. Photos:
