It is very important that the community connects with its youth and try to find out how they tick, what they desire, and that we listen to the many innovative ideas they have, so today is a good day to do that at the Fremantle skate park on the Esplanade.

    Not totally true Mike. Some people did not want the skatepark because they were worried about noise and drugs, but you are right that the majority of those who opposed it wanted it south or north of the Esplanade. I have no doubt the Youth Plaza would have been as successful as it is if it had been added to the Esplanade rather than put on it.

    Cut the crap Rob Fittock, nobody was opposing the skate park, just it’s location and you damn well know that! Your cup of spite is truly always overflowing!

    folks were enjoying the atmosphere and vibrant vibes as I cycled through and more power to the kids and the skate plaza….and I bet the folks who were opposing it are now down there enjoying it with their families
