Streets Alive program winds up in Cardiff this weekend


A street party trial in Cardiff is expected to come to a crescendo this weekend as the Lake Macquarie suburb hosts its final April Streets Alive event on Saturday afternoon.

The four-hour parklet, which kicks off at 4.30pm, will include live music, food and entertainment suitable for all members of the community.

The event forms part of the Cardiff’s Streets Alive program aimed at activating and invigorating the suburb’s retail hub.

The Veronica Place and Kelton Street trial parklets have become home to an activation series throughout April, with pop-ups showing off local artistic and culinary talent.

Lake Macquarie City Council strategic landuse planner Kent Plasto said the activations had displayed how the parklet spaces could be utilised by the community and local businesses.

“We’ve had so much engagement with this series so far, and it’s been great to see local businesses and creatives connect so closely with the community,” he said.

“This final event will be an awesome opportunity to bring friends and family along to see what Cardiff has to offer.

“There’s something lined up for everyone.”
