Get your skates on for Banksia Grove Skate Park
The official opening of the eagerly awaited Banksia Grove Skate Park will be celebrated with a fun-filled community event on 27 October. Located at Grandis Park in Banksia Grove, the new skate park is sure to be a popular place for local young people to get active and meet new friends while working on their skating, scooter and BMX skills. The opening event will provide fun for the whole family, including food trucks, a community barbeque, giant garden games and community stalls. There will also be a chance for young people to show off their skills in the bowl, atop the fun box and along the rails in a hair-raising competition. Don’t forget your helmets! The free event has been organised by a passionate group of young volunteers with support from the City’s youth officers. The Banksia Grove Skate Park is a jointly funded project between the City of Wanneroo, Lotterywest and Banksia Grove Development, at a cost of $600,000. A new sport amenities building at Grandis Park will also officially open on the day. Mayor Tracey Roberts said both facilities will benefit residents of Banksia Grove and surrounding suburbs for many years to come. “The City of Wanneroo is committed to providing facilities that enable our residents to be active and healthy, and I look forward to seeing more of our young people out and about.”
