New kid on the block: Glengala pocket park
Glengala pocket park is the new kid on the block in Sunshine West, with the amenities nearing completion and just a few finishing touches to go.
It’s already providing a cool green space for the community to relax and enjoy the surrounds, in a convenient location at the intersection of Glengala Road and Gum Street, close to Glengala Village shopping strip.
While the park is small in size, it’s big on what it offers with a shelter, paths, lawns and garden beds, bike racks, a drinking fountain and an art installation.
The Glengala pocket park is part of Council’s ongoing commitment to Creating Better Parks Policy and the West Sunshine 20 Minute Neighbourhood Project, and you can read more about it on the Building Brimbank page.
Be Active at the Sunshine Leisure Centre
Not far away down at Sunshine Leisure Centre there’s much fun to be had, and it’s never too late to get into swimming lessons.
Our Be Active program is in full swing and we’ve opened online enrolments for ‘Swim and Survive’, making it even easier to book!
Swim lessons are available for children through to adults and cater for all abilities, so jump onto
leisurecentres.brimbank.vic.gov.au and we hope to see you down at the pool sometime soon.
Sunshine at night lights up with art
Also keep an eye out for Council’s latest display of projected artworks shown on the rear wall of the Brimbank Community and Civic Centre in Hampshire Road, Sunshine.
The projections run nightly from 7pm and currently showcase street photography visuals of COVID-19 pandemic experiences.
Projections like these are what you may expect to find in a large city, and here we are in Sunshine offering our community access to incredible free art forms to enjoy.
We certainly are blessed with the amount of amazing public art installations available for all of our community to experience.
