Birmingham Street Pocket Park

Consultation has concluded.

Consultation for this project has now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. Results are now being collated for consideration of Council .

The Victorian Government (Local Parks Program) recently announced that Council was successful in obtaining funding for a new pocket park in Yarraville.

Council is proposing to transform the closed section of Birmingham Street between Avoca Street and Pentland Parade into a pocket park to increase access to open space in this neighbourhood.

The strategic development of new pocket parks is just one way in which Council is looking to create new open space to benefit the health and wellbeing of everyone who works, visits or lives in Maribyrnong. The park would provide a green space for informal outdoor recreation such as sitting, resting, gathering, play, and connecting with nature.

The improvement of this space aligns with the Maribyrnong Open Space Strategy and the Maribyrnong Bicycle Strategy 2019- 2029, which identifies a future protected bike lane along Birmingham Street. Connections through the pocket park would allow bikes to move through and link to the street network.
