Donations to fundraising campaign encouraged

Thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers and the support of those near and far, construction on the Rotary All Wheels Park is set to begin this fall.

Last year, former Royal Family nanny Jean Rowcliffe partnered with teens Quinn and Sully Bolton to launch a fundraising campaign to revamp and expand the skate park. The group has since secured $100,000 from the St. Marys Rotary Club, along with donations from supporters across the globe.

The money raised will be used to add several new elements to the park, including a quarter pipe, bowl, and pump track. The design of the expanded park was chosen during a public engagement period earlier this year.

Construction on the park is anticipated to last for approximately six weeks. The park will be closed to the public during this time. Exact construction dates and details will be posted on the Town of St. Marys website (, Facebook page ( and Twitter account ( as soon as they are available.

“We are thrilled to create a welcoming environment for riders of all ages, levels of expertise, and talents.” says Stephanie Ische, Director of Community Services. “We want to thank the steering committee for their efforts and all the generous donors who have come together to help create a new and improved park.”

The Skate Park Steering Committee is still actively seeking donations during construction to support the cost of upgrading the park. Members of the public can donate online with a credit card (, through online banking, in person at the Municipal Operations Centre (408 James St. S) or by mailing a cheque to the Town.
