Youth Space opened

Sound Telegraph

The new Baldivis Youth Space was officially opened last Saturday, with local youngsters giving the facility a thorough test drive.

The purpose-built outdoor recreation space at Tranby Reserve was opened by City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels.

“The design of the Baldivis Youth Space involved extensive community consultation and input from local primary and secondary students because we wanted to ensure it would be a place that appealed to them and that they wanted to use,” he said.

“Our aim was to create an enjoyable, contemporary space that gave young people in the area a sense of ownership.”
