Green Spine 2

Stage one of the Malop Street Green Spine, the block between Moorabool and Yarra Streets is now complete.

The Green Spine project is designed to transform Malop Street into a vibrant street and linear park, with an 8-metre-wide botanical walk, featuring stunning indigenous and exotic plants and a series of interconnected gathering spaces beneath a canopy of large trees.

The Malop Street Green Spine project is creating more spaces for people to meet and socialise. The separated one-way bike lanes and meandering walk provide for safe active transport, supporting the health and well-being of the community.

The project contributes to central Geelong’s ‘City in a Park’ principle, creating a new linear park linking Johnstone Park with Eastern Park, and making central Geelong’s streetscape a great place not just for shopping, but for relaxing and enjoying.

Developed following intensive community consultation, the creative vision for the project is underpinned by smart sustainable features such as storm water filtration, and shade and wind breaks that will further enhance the city’s liveability.
