Providing COVID-safe spaces for the community to connect

As COVID restrictions began to ease, we trialled a series of temporary Pop-Up Dining spaces in four local shopping centres.

We wanted to provide COVID-safe outdoor dining and pop-up parks so people could feel safe to meet, eat and reconnect in their local village square, while helping to supporting our local traders. The temporary spaces were designed to inspire with facilitated activations with artists, performers and vendors to bring these spaces to life.

Our Pop-Up Dining spaces were designed to be COVID-safe, taking into account social distancing requirements and regular cleaning. 

Share your thoughts on our Pop-Up Parks and dining spaces

We'd love to hear your feedback on outdoor dining, pop-up parks and activities in your local village square. Please complete the survey. Your feedback is extremely important and will help us understand the impact of our initiatives and plan for the next step in Manningham's Placemaking projects. 

Please complete the survey by 5:00pm  Friday 7 May 2021.
