Westside ‘pop-up’ village

By Canfan 23 July 2014 21


Westside @ Acton Park, a ‘pop-up’ village at West Basin on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, will dramatically change the way Canberrans engage with public spaces.

It will be a lively precinct for people to come together for retail, dining and entertainment experiences and will also provide opportunities to participate and engage in a wide range of sporting and cultural events.

The ACT Government is working with Stromlo Stomping Ground to deliver Westside @ Acton Park.

This is the first step in the ACT Government’s activation of the lakeside, and is a key part of the Government’s broader vision of the City to the Lake project, one of Australia’s largest and most exciting urban renewal projects.

Featuring an events space, a stage, retail outlets, bars, restaurants, cafes and free public Wi-Fi, Westside @ Acton Park will cater for all.


The village will be delivered in stages with the opening of Stage 1 scheduled to coincide with this year’s Floriade, construction of Stage 2 will commence soon after.

The ACT Government will be working with the NCA to ensure that Westside @ Acton Park becomes a destination of choice for all Canberrans.

Further details are available on the Land Development Agency website
