Malop Street Lab
The Malop Street Lab project was a temporary activation during the 2015-2016 summer period to test how people responded to the councils ‘City In A Park’ vision. The Malop street project added street furnituture, grass, trees and plants to Malop Street between Moorabool and Yarra Street.
The Laneway Project
This project, which was part of the Laneways Action Plan, was the first step in turning the area of Little Malop Street between Gheringhap and Moorabool streets into a pedestrian-friendly destination. The road width was reduced and it was styled to become more of an al-fresco dining area. They added extra street trees, street art opportunities and improved lighting.
