FREMANTLE YOUTH PLAZA FIVE YEARS YOUNG

 

EYP

 

The Fremantle Esplanade Youth Plaza is five years young this weekend and that will be celebrated with a skating festival on Sunday the 14th of April from 12-5pm. This is part of WA Youth Week which runs from the 13th to the 20th of April.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said Youth Week had always been a popular event with young people, and this Sunday was shaping up to be a fantastic festival with a range of engaging and fun activities planned.

The family-friendly event will include a skateboarding competition in association with Skateboarding WA, slacklining and parkour workshops, fascinating virtual reality stations, live interactive street art, Hip Hop classes, market stalls, amusements, etc.

The new Fremantle Youth Network members will be at the EYP surveying the community, so come along and have your say.

The City’s Esplanade Youth Plaza provides many free skateboarding and parkour workshops throughout the year, and is known as one of the best youth facilities across the country.

FREMANTLE FAMILY FUN AT ESPLANADE

Fantastic to see so many families at the Fremantle Esplanade Youth Plaza skate park and the Winter Festival ice rink this morning, and the food stalls were also doing a roaring trade.

It also makes for happy trading in the Fishing Boat Harbour, so that is all good for the traders down that way and hopefully also for other cbd businesses.

The weather will be good for another few days so take advantage of it and head out to the Esplanade before the rain returns.

FREO SKATE PARK BIG SUCCESS

shadows 2

 

What a delightfully positive article by a mother about the Fremantle skatepark in today’s Fremantle Herald. Do we need a more tangible example that it is a huge success?

No doubt those who complain about the costs to build it and future maintenance costs will find a negative angle, but I think it is just great that the Esplanade Youth Plaza has been embraced by most in the community.

It is a great and very respectful place for young people to hang out, for families to connect and for oldies like me to admire the acrobatic skill of the skaters, BMXers and scooter riders.
