Skaters from across the province, the Country and further have been giving the Mersey Skatepark positive reviews, citing it as one of the best skateparks in eastern Canada.  Opened on July 1, 2017, the Mersey Skatepark is an example of community spirit and community support at its best. The Queens County Skatepark Association, formed in 2012 with the vision that "It's Time For a Skatepark in Queens!", approached the Region of Queens Municipality's Council for funding support and the land to help them to bring a 20 year dream to life.  A successful community fundraising campaign helped to build the park that the skater community envisioned.  Working with the top skatepark design company in Canada, and with consultation with the skater community about essential and fun features for the park, the Mersey Skatepark design is a challenging, fun and exhilarating ride, suitable for all ages and abilities.  The Mersey Skatepark is a Region of Queens Municipal park, owned and maintained by the Municipality.
