Horscroft Place Pocket Park now open

Moorabbin locals are seeing the potential of small spaces with the delivery of the new Horscroft Place Pocket Park.

Kingston City Council received $700,000 from the Andrews Labor Government to create the new Horscroft Place Pocket Park by expanding the existing pocket park on Healey Street to open up a stronger, user-friendly connection between the Moorabbin Activity Centre and the Reserve.

The new pocket park includes a canopy of trees, bespoke outdoor furniture and public art installations.

The Horscroft Place Pocket Park is among more than 100 projects being delivered across Melbourne under the $154 million Suburban Parks Program, which is creating more than 6,500 hectares of new and upgraded parks and trails, dog parks and play spaces.

“As Melbourne grows, we must keep finding opportunities to provide more open areas and the new Horscroft Place Pocket Park is a great example of how even small open spaces can be designed to maximise community benefit.”

“The past two years have shown us just how important it is to have access to green open space – this new park will provide a location for community connection and brings new life to a much-loved pocket of Moorabbin.”
