The best skateboarders in the State are set to showcase their skills at Crimea Skatepark on Friday 7 December for the Skateboarding WA State Championship Series. This is one of the most well-supported skateboarding competitions in Australia, and we're proud to be hosting it right here in the City of Bayswater.
Skateboarding encourages an active lifestyle and provides a positive social space for young people. This competition is a great opportunity for skaters both young and young at heart to gain exposure to some of the best skaters in the industry. If you're just getting started, the competition will be followed by a series of free all-ages clinics starting in January. Check the Skateboarding WA website for clinic dates.
In other exciting North Ward news, a vibrant public artwork by local artist George Wilkinson is currently underway at Robert Thompson Reserve. A mural is the result of a partnership between the City and Water Corporation, and will see a water pump station transformed into a bright Noranda-themed 'city map'. The artwork will make a fabulous backdrop for the upcoming Noranda Vibes Christmas Concert to be held at held at the reserve on Sunday 25 November from 5pm. I hope to see you there.
