New potential for empty site

New potential for empty site Image

Local fitness fanatics will be pleased to learn an empty future development site has been transformed into an outdoor exercise space.

Opening to the public in May, the park will include a basketball ring, running circuit, gym equipment and an outdoor seating area.

The site has been created by Victoria Harbour developer Lend Lease and is located opposite Dock Square.

According to Lend Lease’s Victoria Harbour project director Claire Johnston, the temporary activation made the land available for community use and complemented the surrounding $63 million community precinct.

“The site was going to be vacant for a couple of years so we decided to turn it into a usable space for the community,” Ms Johnston said.

“It fits perfectly with the library and Dock Square and Lend Lease is happy that the community will get good use out of the space.”

According to a Lend Lease spokesperson, many of the features of the temporary park, including the shelter, are made from recycled building material from the surrounding sites.
