A Community Project
The Harder For Carter Skate Park is truly a community project. Following the tragic accident of Carter Antila, a Memorial Fund was established in his honour with the purpose of building a skate park as this was Carter’s dream. The Antila family, volunteers and the City of Temiskaming Shores worked with the community to raise the money necessary and to provide logistical support to the design and construction of this amazing skate park. The project totalled close to half a million dollars and officially opened in June 2014.
