If the whole thing can be absorbed in a glance, like a good poster, and if every place looks like every other place in the park and also feels like every other place when you try it, the park affords little stimulation to all these differing uses and moods. Nor is there much reason to return to it again and again.

Drummoyne project coming to life!

Place Partners News    Case Studies   

It is always exciting to see an idea come to life, and this is no different for us at Place Partners. In 2011, we worked with City of Canada Bay to develop the Dummoyne Village Public Realm Concept Master Plan, in partnership with Spackman Mossop and Michaels. A key recommendation was to activate Lyons Road corner, changing an empty space into a place where peopple could take advantage of street trees and comfortable public seating Canada Bay Council took this recommendation onboard and has installed new planters and benches around the existing street trees. We look forward to the evolution of the space as the trees and plants grow.
