The popular Point Cook Pop Up Park is set to return this year.

The pop up park will run for eight weeks between February 4 and March 29. Now into its third year, the park will include movie nights and live music.

Last year’s pop up park attracted more than 90,000 visitors and hosted more than 270 free events and activities, supported by Wyndham council, Stockland, local groups and businesses.

Co-leads of the park project, Susan McIntyre and Sara Mitchell, said they believed community-led placemaking created a unique experience of bringing locals together to collaborate, share ideas and make things happen.

The two women said that in addition to giving people a place to meet and get to know one another, the park would help to support the local economy. In February, the park will act as a chill-out zone for the Point Cook Lunar New Year Festival.

In March, the park will host its colourful signature Bolly Holi event. The park will be situated in the restaurant precinct of the Stockland Point Cook Town Centre in Murnong Street.
