There was plenty of festive cheer in Broadford on Friday evening as a pop-up park was officially unveiled at the intersection of Powlett and High streets.

Conceived through the Broadford Structure Plan, the vision of a civic square has now materialised as a trial pop-up park, offering an engaging space for the local community.

The project was a collaborative effort involving various community stakeholders, and the official opening was a celebration of the talents and contributions that brought the space to life.

Broadford Men’s Shed played a pivotal role, showcasing their craftsmanship in creating a wooden Christmas tree and seating.

Adding a burst of colour and creativity to the space were contributions from local artists, Broadford Living and Learning Centre, Kellie’s Crochet Group, Broadford Playgroup, as well as kindergarten, primary, and secondary school students.

Supported by Mitchell Shire Council and the State Government, the project also welcomed the collaboration of three talented local artists who added vibrant asphalt art to the park, showcasing not only a transformation of public space but also providing an opportunity for community artists to engage in a collaborative project.

Local businesses played a crucial role in bringing the community space to life, offering resources for construction and committing to assist in its maintenance.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Louise Bannister said Broadford Pop-Up Park would remain for up to six months as a trial space.

“The project is not just a physical transformation of public space; it is a testament to the unique spirit of Mitchell,” she said.

“Beyond the festive season, the Broadford Pop-Up Park stands as a shining example of what a community can achieve when united by a shared purpose and enthusiasm.

“I encourage the community to explore, enjoy, and utilise this space and appreciate the collective effort that has turned a vision into a vibrant reality.”

Community feedback is encouraged to understand future opportunities in realising a future civic square in the heart of Broadford.
