Skateboard Granny Loved by All

For decades, one woman has been doing her part to make Whitehorse more beautiful.

Amanda Rendell is 99 years old and is known as the “grandmother of the skate park.” Every day she picks up litter there, quietly and without fanfare. The skaters love her and often give her flowers in appreciation. She supports their campaign for a new skate park to replace the current one, which is in rough shape. Amanda says “the skaters deserve it”.
