Revitalizing Central Geelong
Malop Street Lab: The Malop Street Lab project was a temporary activation during the 2015-2016 summer period to test how people responded to the councils ‘City In A Park’ vision. The Malop street project added street furnituture, grass, trees and plants to Malop Street between Moorabool and Yarra Street.
The Laneway Project: This project, which was part of the Laneways Action Plan, was the first step in turning the area of Little Malop Street between Gheringhap and Moorabool streets into a pedestrian-friendly destination. The road width was reduced and it was styled to become more of an al-fresco dining area. They added extra street trees, street art opportunities and improved lighting
