CALGARY -- The city is looking for someone to rail slide into the mobile skatepark business in Calgary.

Five mobile skate parks are now listed for sale on Merx — the public electronic tendering service used by the city — which will be available until 6 a.m. on Nov. 30.

Registered non-profit organizations and government agencies can submit proposals.

"Preference will be given to organizations that will provide programs with social and accessibility benefits in Calgary or within a 20-minute drive from city limits," reads the post.

These units will be sold as-is, and are a non-returnable. Each mobile skatepark includes:

  • Two trailers (for storage and transportation);
  • Half-pipe (with two decks);
  • Quarter-pipe (with one deck);
  • Pyramid;
  • Two round rails;
  • Square rail;
  • Uprail;
  • Two manual pads;
  • Wall ide;
  • Ledge;
  • Hubba ledge;
  • A-Frame;
  • Spine, and;
  • Bank.

Each of the five mobile skateparks contain the same elements, but have different amounts of wear.

A non-mandatory, outdoor site meeting is set for Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. at the Calgary Soccer Centre (7000 – 48th St. S.E.) where one of the skate parks will be on display.
