What is placemaking?
Placemaking is all about creating lively neighbourhoods and inviting public spaces where people want to live, work and play.
Our placemaking program aims to build a sense of place and community as our Northwest Places and communities grow. Our pocket parks near Tallawong station provides spaces to help establish a sense of neighbourhood and belonging while developments are created over time.
The program includes art, food, play, performances and community events, which bring energy to the streets, create new community connections and build the story of our Sydney Metro Northwest Places.
Over the coming years, we will work with local communities to use the ideas and inspiration of the people who live and work locally now and those who may be the communities of the future, to create activities in these temporary pocket parks and other Sydney Metro Northwest locations.
A year of placemaking
In May 2020 we celebrated one year since we commenced our placemaking program. Watch this short video to see what we achieved in our first year.
