    I know this sounds incredibly cliche but being a teenager is about discovering yourself and that is definitely displayed through the people you become friends with, the connections you make, and the way in which you respond to situations. I think what every teenager wants is to feel totally accepted within the world around them. The Inner West is quite possibly the greatest environment to grow up in and that is souly attributed to the incredibly diverse, accepting, multicultural community that has allowed people from all walks of life feel a true sense of belonging.

    Petersham Park is a great place to ride your bike or scooter, have picnics and get some fresh air like many other parks in the inner west. I think we are extremely lucky to live in a community that provides lots of parks and places to walk and relax.

    Graffiti wall

    Sandra, 13

    In this photo I am standing in front of a graffiti Wall. Although this might just seem like any random graffiti wall, it is not. Yes there are many graffiti walls in the inner west but this one is very special. Why?, because this was taken in the Underwood Reserve Summer Hill Park. There is no other graffiti wall outside the inner west that exactly is a replicate, that has the same meaning behind. Sometimes we don't notice how special these small features in our community are, whether it may be just a graffiti wall. This small feature unites us, as a community, making us stand out from everybody else demonstrating that the ...

    In my view this park is what makes the inner west special. I have used it countless times growing up, whether it was a cricket game or learning how to ride a bike in Darrell Jackson. I have made many friends which have steadily grown into best friends whom I see on a regular basis. Without this park I wouldn't have made nearly as many friends as I have had.
