The Commons is an ever-evolving community space that’s designed to be welcoming and inclusive. On-site, you’ll find lots of Gap Filler activities and food stalls/vans. There’s a bike workshop, Retro Sports Facility, and a plant exchange. On our visit we made block towers, a block stepping-stone path, and tried out the obstacle course.
Check out the upcoming events at The Commons like food markets, bike maintenance workshops, movies, and Latino events.
The Commons is located on the site of the Crowne Plaza (corner of Kilmore and Durham Streets), which was demolished in 2012.
There are public toilets and parking nearby seemed to be free at the weekend.
We visited The Commons in March 2016 (autumn).
