Pocket Park Bayshore Drive

Consultation has concluded

The Bayshore Drive Pocket Park is the first project being delivered from the Byron Arts and Industry Estate Precinct Plan, which was adopted in June 2020.

We had over 50 responses from the community about what they wanted to see in the park. The biggest ideas were spaces for sitting and relaxing, native plants and shade and amenity. These have been included in the final design.

The result is a plan that includes a flexible space for hanging out, alone or with friends, and a shady space to eat your lunch.

Works have started and are due to be complete by the end of 2021.

The park is being funded through the NSW government's Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Why is it happening?

The Pocket Park on Bayshore Drive will provide some much needed public space, green infrastructure and an opportunity to bring together the community. Council was successful in receiving grant funding for the project as a part of the NSW Government Stronger Country Communities Fund.

The grant provides funding for the hard infrastructure for the park (on ground seating plantings etc) but also for activation events in the park. It is expected that the on ground infrastructure will be delivered late in 2021 weather permitting.

How can I get involved?

Council will be hosting activation events in 2022 - keep your eyes peeled for events happening in the space.
