Inglenooks are ready for shoppers and locals to relax
The Inglewood on Beaufort community group has helped breathe new life into the Beaufort Street shopping precinct with the construction of two beautifully landscaped civic spaces. Dubbed Inglenooks, the vibrant public open spaces face Beaufort Street - directly opposite the Inglewood Town Square and library.
Design development for the project started in late 2016 with part-funding from the City of Stirling and Federal and State Government grants, as well as an Inglewood on Beaufort contribution from Monday Night Markets proceeds.
The spaces have transformed previously unusable garden beds and some paved areas between Ninth and Tenth Avenues into an inviting destination offering shade, lighting, art, games and gardens for the public to enjoy.
Part of the community group’s efforts to create a safe, bright and people-friendly Beaufort Street, the Inglenooks civic spaces encourage shoppers and locals to take a seat and relax with a coffee or to use the area for a catch up with friends
Inglewood on Beaufort considered that involvement from the local community, businesses and landowners was a key factor in making Inglenooks a reality. Locals helped carry out landscaping works at a planting day hosted by Inglewood in Beaufort where more than 270 native and non-native plants were added to the area.
For the past five years, Inglewood on Beaufort has managed the seasonal and highly successful Monday Night Markets where up to 50 vendors offer international food flavours along both sides of Beaufort Street (from 8th Avenue to 10th Avenue) on Monday evenings.
