Council is creating a new pocket park for the community in Horscroft Place, Moorabbin and we'd like to know what you think of the concept plans.

Last year Council purchased 2 Horscroft Place with the intention of creating the park and improving the streetscape and accessibility from Moorabbin station and the shops, through to Moorabbin Reserve and beyond to the Hospital and TAFE.

Early consultation on the pocket park was conducted in June this year as part of Council’s Moorabbin Renewal project. Thank you to everyone that provided feedback, your input has helped inform the concept plans for the park.

Key elements of the project include:

• A mural artwork along the northern side of the site

• Custom arbour structures, allowing climbers to grow up them at each entry to the site

• A custom social seating table

• Concrete bench seats

• Raised garden beds

• Open lawn spaces

• Park lighting

• Drinking fountain and bin

• New plantings, including new canopy shade trees.

You can view the concept plans below (or more detailed plans in the Document Library to the right).


Project timeline
Demolition works will be completed by early 2021.Park construction is anticipated to begin in mid-2021.

The site will be seeded with lawn after demolition works and will be open to the public when grass has established, prior to park construction commencing.
