A vertical park within a park
This park within a park was a response to a landowner owning a small piece of land adjacent an also small park. The design proposes to vitalise the park and this end of Coolangatta’s main street by the creation of an urban park, funded by the developer buying the under ground land for carparking and air rights for retirement accommodation over.
The park is John Orbansen Park and provides linkage between the main street, Griffith Street and Chalk Street. This permeability is a characteristic of Coolangatta’s main street which is made up of numerous linkages, lanes and alleyways.
