AUSTRALIND SKATE PARK NEWS

Construction on the Skate Park is complete and the park is now open to the public!


AUSTRALIND SKATE PARK OPEN DAY

There was an excellent turnout for the opening of Australind Skate Park on Saturday, 29th July despite unfavourable weather and impending rain showers.

Mrs Robyn Clarke, MLA presented a cheque for $100,000 to the Shire of Harvey for amenities for the Park before the Hon. Mick Murray, MLA formally opened the Skate Park with assistant from the Shire President, Cr Tania Jackson.

The project was funded by the Shire of Harvey, the Department of Sport and Recreation, Lotterywest, Alcoa, JAK Civil, Lake Preston Lime, public donations and community fund raising activities by the Australind Skate Park committee. The Shire would like to thank and acknowledge all the funding contributors to the project.

Freestyle Now held competitions during the day and when the weather cleared, gave inspiring demonstrations and held workshops for the scooters, skate boards and bikes. Lots of great prizes were given away by Freestyle Now owner Shaun Jarvis.

Everyone enjoyed a free sausage sizzle offered by the Shire of Harvey and cooked by the volunteers of the Lions Club of Australind.
