What is a Pocket Park?
Why are we doing engagement with road Closures along Duthy St?
Council has selected 6 existing road closures along Duthy Street and has prepared a questionare to understand the level support for the ‘Pocket Parks Pilot Program’. This exciting pilot aims to work with local residents and business owners to enhance these areas as part of an initiative for safer, more connected and more pleasant places for people.
Pocket Park Vision and Principles
Why Pocket Parks?
The City of Unley is taking a new approach to promote public open spaces in non-traditional places. Our ‘Living City Open Space Strategy’ and ‘Community Plan 2033’ both outline the importance of creating more innovative recreational spaces that will support importance of better connections and social interactions across the City.
Unley has less than 3% public Open Space and opportunities to rethink our local streets including Pocket Parks, will provide more places for people in our neighbourhoods.
Whats next after Engagement?
Will there be loss of parking?
Parking considerations will be considered during the design process and respond to the survey on residents willingness to comprimise parking to enable more street improvements.
