Southbank Boulevard street party

12 Nov 2015

Southbank Boulevard will be brought to life this month with the City of Melbourne hosting a garden themed street party on Sunday, November 29.

With plans to redevelop Southbank Boulevard into a public linear park, the City of Melbourne is staging the event to provide local residents with an opportunity to contribute to the future vision of the project.

Local residents and workers will be able to enjoy freshly roasted coffee, live music, yoga sessions, cultural walks and more as part of the event.

A spokesperson for the event said the initiative was aimed at slowing visitors down to encourage them to enjoy the space by showcasing a range of possibilities that the new public space could offer.

Visitors will also be encouraged to participate in the consultation process, with surveys being recorded on the day.

In its budget released on May 7, the City of Melbourne allocated $500,000 towards upgrading Southbank Boulevard and a further $300,000 towards the creation of the new linear park in Dodds St.

The new linear park would stretch through Southbank Boulevard and Dodds St and provide alternative cycling routes through Southbank, in an attempt to lure cyclists away from riding through the congested Southbank Promenade.

The City of Melbourne will release further information on the Southbank Boulevard event later this month.
