Please make Point Cook Pop Up Park permanent

Our community has over 50 000 people and is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Australia. Often, one of the hardest things to do is to connect with each other and make new friends. It was with this in mind that we wanted to create a space in the heart of our community that is a place to connect, is inclusive, welcoming and enjoyable. The Pop Up Park Pilot (Feb 25th - April 15th 2018) was a community led initiative  through The Neighborhood Project and wouldn’t have been possible without the passion of countless community members and a lot of hard work.

The Pilot has been a huge success and has really bought the community together and created an emotional connection in the heart of the Town Centre. More than 55% who have visited have made new connections and more than 80% of the visitors to the park spent money within the Town Centre.

We believe that a permanent park would work well and provide an outdoor community hub for the surrounding neighbourhoods to connect in and ongoing vibrancy and atmosphere for the surrounding traders to enable them to meet the market and grow their business. We also believe this space could be utilised in winter months for markets and festivals that could showcase some of our local producers and makers and talents within the broader community.

We ask the local stakeholders to support this and look to how we could utilise the outstanding success and learnings from this pilot, to create a permanent and sustainable community park in the heart of our Town Centre, to connect and grow our community now and into the future.
