Shade sails for skaters

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham Sports and Com­mu­nity Club has pro­vided $15,000 for the in­stal­la­tion of two new shade sails at Hor­sham Skate Park.

The sails are al­ready in place at the park on the corner of Na­timuk Road and Park Drive.

Club man­ager Glenn Car­roll said the board was fully sup­port­ive of the pro­ject put for­ward by Hor­sham Ru­ral City Coun­cil.

“The com­pleted shade sails look fan­tas­tic and will pro­vide re­lief from the el­e­ments for all users and ob­servers,” he said.

“The club was able to pro­vide $15,000 to sup­port the pro­ject through our ma­jor com­mu­nity pro­ject fund­ing.

“It took the num­ber of projects funded through this pro­gram to 20, with more than $400,000 al­lo­cated.

“Hor­sham Sports and Com­mu­nity Club con­tin­ues to look for op­por­tu­ni­ties to sup­port the com­mu­nity and ex­pects to make more an­nounce­ments about fu­ture projects soon.”

Hor­sham pro­ject of­fice co-or­di­na­tor Sue Ne­wall said the coun­cil ap­pre­ci­ated the sup­port.

“The skate park is an im­por­tant re­gional out­door recre­ation fa­cil­ity that re­quired ad­di­tional shade pro­tec­tion for all users and spec­ta­tors,” she said.

“The shade cover at the park was min­i­mal and skaters ex­pressed a need for ad­di­tional shade. The new sails triple the shaded area and are al­ready get­ting plenty of use.”
