A day to celebrate community

05 Feb 2020

A day to celebrate community Image

Southbank Residents’ Association (SRA) president Tony Penna is urging locals to come celebrate the opening of the new Boyd Park on Saturday, March 21.

Running from 10am until 4pm, Mr Penna said the Southbank Community Day would be a true showcase of Southbank, with community groups, arts organisations and a range of local services to be present on the day.

Following a traditional Aboriginal smoking ceremony, the Lord Mayor Sally Capp and Member for Albert Park Martin Foley will help to officially unveil the new park to the community, which Mr Penna said was an event not to be missed.

“Come out and meet your neighbours, be part of your community and help us welcome this new park to Southbank,” he said.

“Southbank Community Day has been a work in progress for the last four or so years and we’ve found a perfect opportunity to host the day now because of the new park we’ve got at Boyd.”

“This vision has always been to try and get a good number of our 20,000 residents out of their apartments to meet each other but more importantly to meet the community groups that operate within Southbank.”

Mr Penna said locals could expect a range of activities on the day, including static displays from local police and fire brigade, community workshops, live entertainment, food and kid’s activities.

He said that he was also hopeful of luring the ABC into running a live broadcast from the event.
