Turramurra centre is set to come alive with art installations, lights, community events, a new pedestrian crossing and edible gardens as part of ‘Try Turramurra’. The experience aims to revitalise the area and will run from this November to March next year.
The Try Turramurra experience is being funded through a grant from the NSW Government’s Streets as Shares Spaces scheme, with the aim of bringing life back to local centres following the pandemic.
From next week, artists will be out on Turramurra streets creating eye-catching temporary artworks.
It’s part of a trail designed to attract visitors to the centre and encourage them to linger, with fairy lights and edible aromatic plants in colourful planters also to feature.
Work will begin shortly on a new pedestrian crossing on William Street to encourage visitors on foot.
Two free outdoor events are taking place in November and December as part of Try Turramurra. On Friday 18 November between 7.45pm and 10.30pm there will be a free screening of the Spiderman – No Way Home movie in Cameron Park.
On Friday 9 December between 5pm and 9pm the free Summer Sounds concert will be on the lawn outside the Seniors Centre in Gilroy Road, with musicians playing a selection of favourite classics along with soul singer Danni Da Ros.
Those attending will be encouraged to buy dinner or snacks from local eateries to go into a draw to win one of three $100 vouchers to spend in local stores.
Mayor Jeff Pettett said the Council was keen to see the local community get involved in Try Turramurra.
“We are thankful for the NSW Government’s grant to host Try Turramurra. It’s a great way to invigorate and bring new life to the centre of Turramurra.”
