The Edge Skatepark is truly an amazing place. It's the longest running indoor skatepark in Canada (20 plus years) and without question, one of the best youth programs in Winnipeg. This is due to the extremely committed staff and volunteers who love and serve this much needed community. This summer, they moved from their old building on Pacific and Lily, to a beautiful new building on 333 King Street. The move was not without tearful goodbyes from people who had spent the better part of the last decade calling this old building "home". I was asked to take a few photos to hold on to the memory of the old edge building. This is a small sample of what I experienced.
The Edge will be having a book launch on Feb.12 at 7 p.m. at McNally Robinson. The book is a collaboration of text by Cliff Heide and will feature photographs from a handful of great Winnipeg photographers: Dan Neufeld, Anders Homenick, Cam Nikkel, and myself. Please come and help support this important part of our city.
