Pocket Parks Tour

How do you create public green space in an area that sees rapid gentrification swallow up all available land?

Since 2009, the City of Yarra’s Converting Roads to Parks Program has generated open space projects by using existing traffic infrastructure, such as council-owned car parks and sections of roads.

Take a tour of these completed and planned ‘pocket parks’ and learn why they are so vital to ensuring a safe and vibrant suburb in the future.

Presented by Open House Melbourne and City of Yarra as part of AILA’s Festival of Landscape Architecture: This Public Life. Open House Melbourne is presenting a series of free public tours that take in some of Melbourne’s most progressive civic landscape initiatives.
