Although it’s been open for a couple months already the official grand opening of Onslow Skate Space on the 24 of February provided an opportunity for the whole community to come together and celebrate the new space. Located in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia the space has been a welcome addition to the town.
The Shire of Ashburton President Kerry White said the skate park has created a valuable space for the town where people of all ages could come together and have fun. “Having a dedicated facility for local youth to burn off energy, develop physical skills and spend time with their friends and family has had such a positive impact in the community.”
The planning and design of the space was the result of numerous consultations with the local community and school and the design team at Convic. The space was supported by BHP Billiton, and the Country Manager Graham Salmond was impressed by the level of consultation and engagement with the local community, resulting in the final design of the new skate park reflecting exactly what the community wanted.
