Susan McIntyre and Sara Mitchell, Point Cook residents and members of the Point Cook Action Group, said: “The Point Cook Pop Up Park is a fantastic collaboration between the local community, Wyndham City Council and Stockland.

“Point Cook is known as one of the fastest growing suburbs in Australia and we saw an opportunity with the Pop-Up Park to encourage community connection and strengthen the local economy.”

“We are extremely excited to be a part of Point Cook’s first Pop-Up Park, offering a great experience not only for the community but for customers visiting the centre and for the retailers The park itself will be a great draw card providing a wonderful opportunity to grab a meal from a local retailer and relax in the activated outdoor space.”
