ONSLOW SKATE SPACE
One of the most remote communities in the Pilbara region of Western Australia is home to the newest skate park in the country. The Onslow Skate Space is designed to cater to all ages and skill levels with beginner to intermediate level features located to allow for flow and progression through the space.
As part of the planning and design process 10 local children were selected as Ambassadors for the Skate Park. Several community consultations were held to ensure that the needs of the locals were being met. The skate features include an organic shaped bowl, hubbas, a pump track, cantilever banks, vert walls and ledges. In addition to the skate elements an outdoor ping pong table, art features, hopscotch and foursquare are integrated into the facility to provide diverse activity and engagement for all community members.
Inspiration for the space comes from the local flora and fauna such as the iconic termite mounds the Pilbara is famous for – and has created a vibrant and unique space for all to enjoy.
