Stockland Point Cook is a dab hand at hosting events that brings the community together in a fun way for free. In time to greet the summer and supported by by not-for-profit CoLocal, Wyndham City Council, local community groups and businesses, everyone's favourite Pop-Up Park is back. Up and running, the heart of Point Cook kicks off on Tuesday 4 February and goes till Sunday 29 March 2020 and is located at the Stockland Point Cook Town Centre dining precinct on Murnong Street.

Think complete transformation: a bland road transforms into a fun community space complete with bean bags, shades and comfortable lounging spaces where you can enjoy casual dining alfresco in a vibrant outdoor space. It's a busy 8 week calendar packed with freebie events for all ages that includes outdoor movies, live music, craft workshops, a cultural hub for Bolly Holi (8 Mar) and the Lunar New Year Festival (8 Feb).

So much is going down for the community to enjoy, makes one feel like breaking out in song!♩♫ "I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty. I've got whozits and whatzits galore. You want thingamabobs? I got twenty" ♫ ♪ Check the complete list HERE on the event page of the Park's Facebook page. For more information and the FAQs, check HERE.


This year a group of students studying their Master of Environment at Melbourne University will join the Park's placemaking team, educating the community on matters of sustainability in fun and engaging ways. Awareness will be raised about the importance of local wetlands and the local critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot.

The wetlands and coastal reserve nearby are home to some of Victoria's most vulnerable species and the role the residents can play as stewards of this environment is a unique and exciting opportunity. Enjoy the participative mural on Murnong street and a Wishing Tree to reflect on what it means to live in the Point Cook ecosystem and more.
