We’re making the High Street ‘pop up park’ permanent. Work is expected to begin on the park in the first half of 2017. See the final concept plan (pdf 2.3MB).
A pop up park at the western end of High Street (near Henry Street) was successfully trialled from 2013, creating a space for community events and a spot to sit and relax with friends. This area of our City Centre has great potential to be more vibrant and
attractive to benefit residents, workers, visitors and local businesses.
Business and community representatives have provided ideas about what they want the park to be – calling for a green space that would cool the city, inject new life into the City Centre and be a social place supporting the day and night time economy.
We are now in the detailed design development phase which will be followed by
documentation for construction.
We encourage you to have your say about community plans, policies and issues that will shape our City's future...
