On Sunday, October 16th, witnesses observed two female youths vandalize the Akwesasne Skatepark by drawing on one of the obstacles with a marker. After they were told to stop by a witness, they began to hide the image with a white marker.


The arena staff will now have to spend time and resources trying to remove this image from the obstacle.


The skatepark was created for everyone. It belongs to all of us. We need to treat it with respect and take care of it. If you have information about this incident or see someone purposely acting inappropriately towards the skatepark or any other user, please contact the Akwesasne Mohawk Police at 613-575-2000 or Economic Development at 613-575-2250.


We are aware that art is associated with skateparks. We are working on a design plan over the winter which will include landscaping, vegetation, furniture, lighting, and art/sculpture by local artists and artisans.
