The first-ever Sk8 Park Jam in Owen Sound this week was quite successful.

About 200 participants and supporters gathered at the new Kiwanis Sk8 and Bike Park to show off their skills on skateboards, BMX bikes, and scooters. It was a friendly competition at different skill levels.

The event was hosted by the Owen Sound Police Service and the Owen Sound Police Association, with support by S.T.O.P summer students and a local business.

A spokesperson for the police service says plans for a much bigger event next summer have already started.
