What we are doing Market Street Lawn
A new place to play
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.
Landscaping the Lawn
A development application lodged with Newcastle City Council in March 2017 outlines our plans to transform Market Street Lawn and restore the historic Signal Box, which dates back to 1936.
If the development application is approved, the fully landscaped Market Street 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.
