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.
