Saturday July 4th , 2015, marked the grand opening of the Charlie Bowins Skatepark at Mcnabb Park in Ottawa at the corner of Bronson and Gladstone. The King Eddy was blessed with Charlie's positive energy and radiant smile before his sudden passing in March 2015. 

Charlie was a big part of the Ottawa Skateboard Community, spending his summers teaching kids how to skateboard at Mcnabb's summer indoor skatepark, participating in various fundraising event for Ottawa's first inner-city skatepark, and having a say in the design of the new park.

On Satuday night we played host to a special burger party for the entire Ottawa skateboard community in celebration of their great accomplishment and a very special member of that community, our friend Charlie. We're hoping that Charlie's park is one of many to come for this great city! For more information and how to get involved, please visit www.ottawaskateboard.ca
