truth & reconciliation
The Park will be the centrepiece of the billion-dollar Mac Point development.
The 13,000sqm truth and reconciliation art park will partially be developed as part of The District land release, and will create an open space where people can come to escape the city.
Activities proposed for the 13,000sqm parkland include its use for large scale events and festivals, as well as providing a meaningful and culturally respectful space to encourage a sense of connectedness within community.
The Corporation is currently developing a design for The Park based off significant feedback from the Tasmanian community.
A draft design is due to be released in late-2021.
MAC POINT'S FUTURE
The Master Development Plan establishes seven precincts within the 9.3-hectare site:
The Goods Shed;
The Underground; and
These precincts are specifically designed to underpin the planning scheme framework and includes a range of mixed use and arts and institutional development including, the Hobart City Deal initiative for the Antarctic and Science Precinct to promote Hobart’s position as the gateway to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean.
The centrepiece will be the creation of The Park (truth and reconciliation art park) – a 13,000 square metre public open space important for large scale events and festivals, providing a meaningful and culturally respectful space to create a sense of connectedness through play, public art, green and cultural spaces.
