Haig Park Experiments is commissioning a portable multi-purpose cart for Park Caretakers to use for carrying workshop materials, lightweight seating, outdoor cooking equipment, and more. The cart functions as a ‘concierge desk’ and moves around the park as needed.

Place plan theme: Cultural Program
'To provide a diverse range of things to do within the park.'

Dates:
July - October
27 July - Haig Park Forest Sounds, 12:00pm-2:00pm
18 August - Haig Park Forest Dwellers, 12:00pm-2:00pm

Observation:
Haig Park has no flexible facilities to enable delivery of small-scale community engagement activities such as workshops or gatherings.

Hypothesis:
A portable multi-purpose cart can facilitate the materials and equipment necessary for small events and workshops in Haig Park.

Favourable outcomes

Art Cart improves the functionality and amenity of experiments, therefore increasing park usage and improving public perception.
