Bringing new life to our public spaces

We’re upgrading some of our key precincts to bring a sense of ‘place’ to your Boroondara.

Placemaking is the collaborative approach we’re taking to improving Boroondara’s public spaces. We’re listening carefully to the needs and aspirations of our communities and responding with projects to enhance the vibrancy and economic viability of our centres, create opportunities for social connection and improve our community’s health and wellbeing.

Local communities have a connection to their public places and help bring them to life. This is why we are working with them to co-design vibrant spaces where people feel a sense of belonging.

Since Council’s placemaking program began in 2019, a number of projects have commenced that aim to create people-focused streets filled with arts and activity, build lively local economies, consider sustainable access, preserve and enhance local heritage and character, and remain ‘green at heart’ for a healthier city.

What’s new in Maling Road

From laneway upgrades to art installations, we’re delivering on the Maling Road Place Plan. Visit our Maling Road placemaking project page for more information. 

Next up, Camberwell Junction

Camberwell Junction is one of Boroondara’s key activity centres. Home to the Camberwell Fresh Food Market, the iconic Camberwell Sunday Market, a broad mix of retailers, boutique eateries, lively wine bars and the magnificent Rivoli Cinema, ‘the Junction’ presents a world of opportunity for locals and visitors alike to connect and explore a historic shopping destination within Melbourne’s inner-east.

Have your say and help shape the future of your precinct by sharing your vision for Camberwell Junction and what you love most about it.
