THE Walliabup Skate and Recreation Park will officially open on Saturday.

The park in Bibra Lake was inspired by four primary school students who complained there was nothing to do.

They door knocked for signatures and were supported by the Bibra Lake Residents Association (BLRA).

Four years later their goal has been achieved – and Cameron Giles, Hunter Moore, Jai Grant and Cody Cleggettare now in high school.

The park includes a street plaza, skate ramps, a half-pipe, scooter track, public toilets, carpark, barbecue amenities, basketball court and a playground.

Artwork by students from Bibra Lake Primary School is also included.

The park will be opened by Mayor Logan Howlett and Willagee MLA Peter Tinley.
