Dock Square – the new urban square at the heart of Melbourne’s Docklands has recently opened to the public. This collaborative design by ASPECT | OCULUS is set to be a new hub for the Docklands community. It is the centre piece of the new urban revitalisations of Victoria Harbour.
Locals braved the cold winter weather to enjoy the public opening and explore the food stalls, spacious central lawn, and the new urban/waterfront play precinct. Dock Square is being programmed to host more urban activities in the future.
In addition, across the street, a new temporary activation site was opened that includes a pop up park with fitness equipment, a basketball court and an interactive dog park. Many of the elements have been recycled from the Lend Lease construction depot for Victoria Harbour.
