The St Albans Bus Interchange on Alfrieda Street is set to be transformed into a pop up park on Saturday 25 July.
The St Albans Electric Park Pop Up at the bus interchange, which is also an electricity substation, will play host to an array of family-friendly activities at no charge and the whole community is invited to attend.
Chair of Brimbank Administrators Mr John Watson said, “Council is excited to lead and deliver this exciting project in the heart of St Albans.
“We are always looking for ways Council can build community capacity and skills to drive long term change.
“In this instance we are working collaboratively with the community to trial this temporary place making project that will be fun, flexible and something we are sure the whole community will enjoy.
“Most importantly, not only will the community be the ones to enjoy this pop up space, but the community is also actively involved and essential in shaping this temporary space,” Mr Watson said.
Mr Watson said the joint vision for the project is to create a meeting place for the community that is vibrant, multicultural, clean and green and where the community feels safe day and night.
The community has planned a program of events to be offered at the Electric Park Pop Up that will include cultural dances, children’s activities, workshops on planting and propagating seeds, doll making, a barbecue and much more at no cost.
The project is a collaboration between Brimbank City Council, Brimbank Leadership Alumni, Catholic Regional College St Albans, the Brimbank Youth Events Committee, St Albans Business Association, Victoria Police and local community groups.
