Come along and join in on the placewarming activities and help create a great community space.
Beresfield: Bring this space to life
As part of the Beresfield Local Centre Public Domain Renewal Project, City of Newcastle is creating a new public open space at the intersection of Beresford Avenue and Lawson Avenue. This corner space has the potential to be a prominent and special place for locals to meet and spend time.
A placemaking co-design process has been identified as the best way to create a space that the community will cherish into the future. Placemaking focuses on taking a public space and creates a living space for the community, it includes thoughtful and inclusive designs with input from the community. The placewarming activity invites the community, those who will be working, living and / or recreating in a place – into the space to experience, generate and test ideas to imagine how this space could be activated and used into the future i.e. “warming the place”.
This new community space is the final piece of the renewal works and we want you to help us create a welcoming place for residents, businesses and visitors to enjoy into the future.
The community and local businesses are invited to come along to share their ideas and get a feel for the new space. There will be an ideas wall, on-site community activities, bicycle workshop by Steads Cycles, music and artists Up’n’Up will be there to showcase the great ideas that have come from workshops held at local schools earlier this year.
