Skateboarders, BMX and scooter riders of all ages are invited to be a part of the future design of the Tom Price Skatepark.
Shire President Kerry White is encouraging all users groups to get involved in the workshop and help inform the Shire as to what the community would like to see at the skatepark.
“The Shire is investing $250,000 in this much-used community amenity and we want to ensure the communities needs and expectations are meet in this upgrade”, said Councillor White.
“We have engaged Perth-based Skate Sculpture, a specialty skatepark design consultancy, to lead this process with our community.
“Skate Sculpture have assisted with many of WA’s acclaimed skatepark designs, redesigns and upgrades including Forrestfield, Mosman Park, Byford, Beyond Skate North Perth and Beyond Skate Whitford.
“Our skatepark provides a positive hub for our youth community and is an important piece of infrastructure in the heart of town.
“The upcoming workshop and engagement session in Tom Price will look at preferred skatepark designs and how we can activate the existing space further to create a vibrant recreational hub.
“Join us on Friday 30 October from 3.30pm to 5.30pm at the skatepark to meet with Skate Sculptures and also show off your tricks and skills!”
