We were engaged by Transport Canberra City Services to develop a feasibility study and concept designs for a series of micro parks across seven neighbourhoods in Canberra. A design guide was also prepared to illustrate the place assessment methods, community engagement process, design requirement, application and so on. The local communities and stakeholders were engaged since the early phase of the project.
The key objectives of the micro park program are:
- Foster community interaction.
- Support local businesses and promote economic vitality.
- Encourage active travelling and active living.
- Explore new models of improving and managing public space.
