It has become a hotspot for those sleeping rough, but a new City of Melbourne plan aims to activate Enterprize Park.

The $450,000 plan aims to improve public amenity and activation.  Although the scope of the work is still being finalised, City of Melbourne spokesperson Jem Wilson told Southbank Local News that elements such as landscaping, pathways and infrastructure works were being considered.

“We are working with key stakeholders, including the Melbourne Aquarium, on the scope of the improvements,” she said.

Among the improvements will be an installation of new and upgraded lights to enhance the features of the area.

Coinciding with the lighting upgrade, the City of Melbourne is hosting the Koorie Night Market in Enterprize Park on Saturday, February 13.

“The market showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art local to Victoria, as well as cultural music and dance performances,” Ms Wilson said.

“As the park is a site of cultural and historical significance to Aboriginal people, the City of Melbourne aims to raise community awareness about the cultural significance of the site and reconnect the site with traditional owners.”

With the park regularly used as a place of shelter for the homeless, Ms Wilson said the council would continue working with homelessness services as part of the redevelopment of the park.

“Any planned works at Enterprize Park will be done in consultation with homelessness services and people sleeping rough in the area to ensure we continue to support our city’s most vulnerable,” she said.
