Graffiti brightens skateboard park

Young people from Norris Green have brightened their local skateboard park with a spectacular piece of graffiti art.

The youngsters, aged between 10 and 16, have been working with  professional graffiti artist, Kieran Gorman from Zap Graffiti,  to design the artwork

A number of organisations including Norris Green Youth Centre, Action For Achievement and Ellergreen Community Centre have been involved in the scheme  which was funded by a successful Awards For All bid by The Friends of Scargreen Park (SPRING).

The young artists  used both  computers and paper  for their initial designs  which they expanded on parts of the skateboard park.

Local Councillor Barry Kushner said: “It’s a really impressive work  which has brightened up the skateboard park and it now looks really good, It shows that we have some very talented and creative young people in Norris Green.”

The skateboard park was opened in 2014 by Mayor Joe Anderson and was the first in a network of skate parks throughout Liverpool after young people had ben consulted on what facilities they wanted.
