Aiden BoyhamSound Telegraph

The City of Kwinana is set to celebrate the official opening of Edge Skatepark on October 7, with a huge action-packed day planned for the big event.

Built at a cost of $1.5 million, Edge Skatepark has already been in use for several weeks after the project was completed ahead of schedule, with the grand opening set to mark the official celebration of the new facility.

The official opening is set to include coaching clinics, competitions, demonstrations, food trucks and live DJs.

Mayor Carol Adams said it was pleasing to see the skatepark being used by a diverse range of users and age groups, with the facility already becoming one of the most popular in the City.

“The grand opening celebration will be a chance for skatepark users, parents and the wider community to come together and experience what this state-of-the-art facility has to offer,” Ms Adams said.

“The City has been receiving feedback that the Edge Skatepark is one of the best skating facilities in the State, and we are very proud to have a facility of this calibre in Kwinana.” The morning will be focused around beginners, with clinics for under 12s and a parent information session from 11am.

The official opening will take place at 12.30pm, followed by higher-level demonstrations leading into DJ sets in the afternoon. Youth engagement activities by Australian Red Cross, Headspace and Relationships Australia will also run throughout the day.

The Zone Youth Space will have a chill-out zone and Kwinana Public Library will run a pop-up space.
