Open Space Projects

Rhodes Foreshore Park
Rhodes Foreshore Park

Open space and foreshore areas in Rhodes will focus on encouraging and promoting a sense of community through the integration of public art. Planning of the peninsula has therefore included the development of an interconnected Open Space Plan and Arts Plan alongside making improvements to the existing open space and foreshore areas.

The movement of people throughout the peninsula and around the foreshore was an important challenge facing the Open Space Masterplan. Access for the local community as well as cyclists from outside has therefore been taken into consideration as footpaths and lanes are built, improved and linked up.

Streets, buildings and public art are being developed in partnership to complement one another, with the public art providing a vibrant essence to the neighbourhood. The entrances to the Peninsula are also key focal points for the public art in order to create a sense of welcoming and identity to visitors.
