Pocket Parks Pilot Program

The City of Unley is committed to making our local street network safer, greener and more accessible across the City. The Pocket Parks build on traffic strategies of the past, which closed a number of side streets across the city. These underutilised road closures create an opportunity to enhance the green character of Unley’s streetspaces, provide safer connections and a place to pause and connect.

We have established the ‘Pocket Parks Pilot Program’ to work with local residents and businesses to create safer, greener pocket parks. There are key to defining a safe, connected and pleasant street network that can enhance accessibility and lifestyle within the City of Unley.

Pocket Parks should add to quality of life for residents and better reflect the Councils commitment to be a leading age friendly city and support the local businesses along Duthy Street.
