Great video on interactive skate plazas – ideal for Freo perhaps?

Andrew Sullivan just sent around this excellent video.

When skateboarders / place makers / filmmakers Tim Yuen and Mat de Koning (2011 WA Young Filmmaker of the Year) were unsatisfied with the generic skate facilities that segregated skaters from the public spaces, they succeeded in finding a way of bringing their hobby into the public realm by consolidating public art and recreational activity.

I think this is a model that will work well for Esplanade Park and what we are working towards.

    Thumbs up Brad! I particularly like the comment that the lady made about feeling safer because there were skaters around.

    Fantastic video. I’m one of the residents in favour of the skate plaza for the Esplanade park.
    I hope it gets done, it is the right place for it.
