A new laneway pop-up-park for Ringwood East!

Over the past 12 months, the impacts of COVID-19 have been felt around the world. The 20-minute neighbourhood principles of creating places - where everything we need is within a 20-minute walk, bike ride or public transport journey, has never been more important.

Over the past months, Council has been working closely with businesses in Ringwood East, and more broadly, to encourage a renewed sense of place. Creating safe shared spaces and new community infrastructure that encourage visitation to our local centres.

The project

In late 2020, Council secured funding from the State Government, through its Neighbourhood Activity Centre Renewal Fund to:

  • Build a new pop-up park and shared-use parklet
  • Upgrade infrastructure such as footpaths, pedestrian crossings and garden beds
  • Develop an exciting program of arts and cultural activities
  • Attract people back to this vibrant neighbourhood activity centre

Working collaboratively with our project partners, Ringwood East Traders Association (RETA) and Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place (MMIGP), we have now started work on the laneway pop-up park at 26 Railway Avenue, Ringwood East.

Over the coming weeks we want to hear from you on how this space could be used into the future. To stay informed on this project and to receive notification for when consultation commences leave your details via the stay informed tab on this page.

If you would like more information on this project, please call us on 9298 4598 or 1300 88 22 33.
