Woods and Lohse Street – Public Realm Revitalisation
The public realm at Woods and Lohse street including the park and playground will be revitalised as a part of Better Places Laverton. Council will be undertaking community engagement with traders, local residents and visitors which will be used to inform the design. This project will create a platform to accommodate future opportunities and revitalisation of the shops and the surrounding neighbourhood. It will transform into a distinctive space to connect people.
Initial design aims and ideas for the upgrade includes;
-Prioritising environmental sustainability through design, by encouraging walking, cycling and drawing the local natural environment into the centre.
-Strengthen the connection between the streetscape and the park.
-Create a gathering space with more reasons for people to visit, play, enjoy and relax.
-More shade trees, more lawn and colourful native grassland garden beds
-Bring the playground area closer to the shops to encourage visitors to both
-Unique play equipment and distinctive signage to highlight this as the centre and arrival point from Laverton Station.
-More outdoor activities for young people to compliment Woods Street Art Space and Mesh Mash Screenprint studio.
The next step will be to prepare a design concept and the community will be invited to comment and have further input.
