Bendigo’s Pop-up Park
Last weekend the “Forest in the City”, Pop-art Popup Park celebrated its opening. The park is designed to reinvigorate Hargreaves Mall that introduces colour, texture, warmth and shade, and encourages people to sit and play. Gemma Fennell‘s design plays on the idea of Bendigo being a city in a forest, with the park representing a forest in the city.
It features artificial turf overlaying mounds that reflect the local hills. The garden beds have flowering plants and established trees to soften the space and provide dappled shade.
The project has been featured in the Bendigo Advertiser – click here to read more.
