The Skate Jams at Peace Park
If you don’t already know, the Peace Park, a legendary street skateboarding spot in Montreal, is now a place where skateboarding is completely legal. A big thanks goes to Dave Bouthillier for allowing us to skate the smooth granite of this parc, but also for the organisation of the Peace Park Skate Jams.
Every first Tuesday of the month throughout the summer, a Jam will be held at the Peace Park with free food, music and money to give away for the best maneuvers on the obstacles. Wether you want to participate or just hang out and take advantage of the park and the festivities, this event will not leave you disappointed. You may even leave a little richer!
