New ‘Cof­fee Palace Park’ at Stawell

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

An in­ter­sec­tion of Main, Vic­to­ria and St Ge­orges streets in Stawell will now be known as Cof­fee Palace Park.

North­ern Grampians Shire Coun­cil voted at its June meet­ing to adopt the name.

The of­fi­cial nam­ing comes af­ter com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion, with over­whelm­ing sup­port of the pro­posed Cof­fee Palace Park name, based on the site’s his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance and con­nec­tion to the ‘Cof­fee Palace’, a ten­ant at the site from 1889 to1956.

The coun­cil will now ex­plore fur­ther en­hanc­ing the space by dis­play­ing in­for­ma­tion about the site’s pre­de­ces­sors.

North­ern Grampians mayor Kevin Er­win said most com­mu­nity com­ments were based on hav­ing some his­tory of the site on dis­play.
