7 Well Street pocket park

We’re transforming the vacant site at 7 Well Street, Brighton, into a fabulous passive recreation space for all to enjoy.

Council decided to create a pocket park at 7 Well Street, which is just a short stroll from the Church Street shopping precinct, in December 2021, following community support for more public open space in the area. 

Our community told us they wanted a passive space for relaxation, sitting and reading at this site during the first phase of community engagement in late 2021.

We undertook further consultation from 16 January – 13 February 2023 to ensure our concept design met community needs and expectations. Community ideas helped shape the detailed design of the pocket park.

Key features

The park will showcase a range of over 500 native and indigenous plants, including shrubs, grasses, flowering plants and large trees. Other features include:

  • Outdoor seating
  • two accessible picnic tables
  • bike racks
  • accessible pathways
  • a waste bin
  • pedestrian route through to Church Street.

Commencing Wednesday, 23 August 2023. Works will take approximately 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting, between 7am to 5pm, weekdays.

What to expect during works

Works will include:

  • Replacing the existing fence adjacent to the car park
  • constructing accessible paths
  • preparing garden beds
  • landscaping
  • installing the park furniture.

The adjacent carpark will be open for public access except for two parking bays at the front of the car park and the on-street parking bay in front of 7 Well Street.  Some minor interruptions to car park traffic may occur as contractors access the two parking bays within the car park.

These works are expected to have minimal impact on surrounding residents and visitors to the area.
