R3D was proud to be involved in the Point Cook pop-up park project. R3D donated the time to create the concept visualisation which was used in the project application and marketing.
The project has been short-listed for a grant from the Neighbourhood Project, which shares $100,000 among a number of joint council and community initiatives aimed at breathing new life into local spaces.
Point Cook resident Susan McIntyre applied for the grant in July to fund a temporary pop-up park at the Point Cook Town Centre, to be located at the restaurant end of Murnong Street.
Ms McIntyre called on Wyndham council to allocate $50,000 in its 2017-18 budget towards the park’s set-up, but was unsuccessful.
Ms McIntyre and the Point Cook Action Group would now work alongside the council in a series of workshops before delivering a funding pitch to the Neighbourhood Project team.
“They’ve only picked five projects in total, so that’s positive,” she said of the pitching process.
She is also in talks with Point Cook Town Centre management.
The Neighbourhood Project is a philanthropic movement run by social enterprise design consultancy CoDesign Studio and supported by the Myer Foundation, Resilient Melbourne, the Muncipal Association of Victoria, city2050 and Think Impact.
The Point Cook proposal is inspired by a pop-up park in Yarraville.
