New murals at Neil Hawkins Park, Picnic Cove Park, and Geneff Park

Categories:

Local artist Kerise Delcoure has painted murals celebrating endangered birds on the City’s three Public Outdoor Ping Pong (POPP) tables at Geneff Park (Sorrento), Picnic Cove Park (Edgewater), and Neil Hawkins Park (Joondalup).

The mural project included a school outreach program with Year 5 students at St Mark’s Anglican Community School in Hillarys to design the flora and fauna themed murals.

The POPP tables and murals combine the game of ping pong, the colour and storytelling of artwork and the value of place-making to create a playful amenity in any community, school or urban space. Residents are encouraged to take down a bat and ball and enjoy a free game of ping pong with friends.
