A place to hang in Noranda

NORANDA town centre has a new funky outdoor community area.

Picnic furniture, lighting and an outdoor ping-pong table with colourful artwork have been installed under the shady trees between Hawaiian’s Noranda shopping centre and the Morley Noranda recreation club.

Bayswater mayor Dan Bull said the space would create a better connection between the shopping and sporting precincts.

• Bayswater mayor Dan Bull, artist Peter Ryan (who painted the ping-pong table) and Hawaiian manager Scott Greenwood.

“What was an unused patch of grass is now a lively community space that gives people more reason to spend time in the town centre, which can only be a good thing for local businesses,” he said.

“It’s the perfect spot to relax with a book from the little library, play a game of table tennis or just enjoy spending time outdoors.

“The Noranda community told us they want to see public space in the town centre used more effectively, which is exactly what this project has achieved.”

The project is a partnership between Bayswater council, Hawaiian and the Noranda Vibes community group.
