PARK INFORMATION

Hastings skatepark was designed by Jim Barnum at Spectrum skateparks and completed in 2001. At the time the city of Vancouver was lacking Parks with coping and Hastings was built to not only fill that void but to deliver a modern, world class transition facility to Vancouver skateboarding.  The park consists of multiple hips, corners, depths (4',6',8',10'3), transfers, spine, endless coping and a 6-8' volcano that's been named the "Black Russian" in memory of the late Josh Evin (1981-2010) who rode away from many mind boggling tricks on it. 

Over the years there have been many events hosted at Hastings from the Slam City Jam Bowl jams, Battle at Hastings, Van Doren Invitationals and multiple demos. It's safe to say multiple generations have tested out its beautiful curves and smooth coping. Notable locals include Alex Chalmers, Keegan Sauder, Rick McCrank, Sluggo, Renee Renee, Josh Evin (RIP) and the Hastings Beach lifeguards who are always off duty.
