The community is encouraged to help celebrate the City of Karratha’s Youth Shed and Indoor Play Centre’s upcoming seventh birthday, with a program of fun festivities on offer to mark the occasion.
The Indoor Play Centre, located within The Youth Shed facility on Hillview Road, is a family-friendly facility offering an air-conditioned children’s playground for infants to 12-year-olds and a café with a revamped menu for parents and grandparents.
Birthday celebrations will kick off at 9am and include a free petting zoo, face-painting, bouncy castle, birthday cake and roving entertainers. Normal admission fees apply.
The Youth Shed’s space for 11-18 year olds offers at least five free programs for young people each week, in addition to table tennis, pool, computers, gaming stations and a skate park.
Activities and entertainment at The Youth Shed to mark the special occasion include a mural art project, basketball tournament, barbecue, birthday cake and beats.
There will be competitions and prizes throughout the event, which starts at 1pm and finishes at 9pm.
City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said the focus of youth services had evolved dramatically over recent years from drop-in recreational activities to providing leadership opportunities.
“Council understands youth services is a priority area for our community and we are proud to provide a wealth of diverse programs, activities and events for youth to enjoy across the City,” Cr Long said.
“By actively engaging the views of our young people, the City continues to increase our level of service and explore opportunities to do more to meet community need.
“This birthday is a great opportunity to celebrate our progress in this area so come down and enjoy the fun.”
