Entertainment in progress
A MUSIC series, pop-up bar and yoga sessions are among the community’s ideas for a rejuvenated pocket park in Morley.
Upgrades including a stage deck, seating, paths, lighting, greenery, bike racks, festoon lights and a water fountain have recently been added to the park, which is in Progress Street.
Community group The Morley Momentum received $65,000 in funding from the City of Bayswater and the
Federal Government for the transformation.
Committee member Jess Hunt said the group was pleased with the upgrades.
“It is a drastic improvement to what was here before,” she said.
“It is again really good to bring some more greenery to the centre of Morley.
Ms Hunt said community members voiced at the park’s launch party that they wanted a music series, popup bar, yoga, theatrical showcases and monologues at the park.
Mayor Dan Bull said he looked forward to seeing the park used for small events, activities and gatherings.
“Progress Street pocket park provides a slice of green sanctuary in the middle of a bustling urban area,” he said.
“The deck can be used as seating or a stage for street performers.”
The group will be planning stage two of the project in 2020.
