What we are doing Market Street Lawn
The Market Street Lawn opening in December 2016 was an important moment in the city’s transformation, showing how the former heavy rail corridor can be a fantastic space for public use.
The community’s vision for Market Street Lawn, which we are delivering, is an engaging, inclusive and inspiring public space for everyone in the community to enjoy.
A development application approved by Newcastle City Council outlines our plans to transform Market Street Lawn and restore the historic Signal Box, which dates back to 1936.
The fully landscaped Lawn will feature new trees, open green space and a paved plaza with illuminating water feature. The heritage significance of the Signal Box will be protected, with the Box restored and opened up to new uses to benefit the entire community.
Market Street Lawn is available for a range of community, charity and business events providing they align with our vision for the lawn. With landscaping works commencing soon, please get in touch and discuss you upcoming event requirements. Read more about how you can book Market Street Lawn for your event here.
