A popular location for events and weddings, or just a stroll through some open green space away from the bustle, Prospect Estate is a tranquil park.
With a fountain, creek, rock pools and large towering trees, it a shady and cool escape in summer-time.
With a strong arts focus, there’s a mix of street art in the form of sculpture, murals and commissioned graffiti art.
While the Stobie Poles of the area are disappearing with the power moving underground, many of those that remain showcase the work of local artists.
Predominantly the stretch up to Gladstone / Alpha Rd, Prospect Road has a huge variety of cafes and restaurants. Italian or Greek, breakfast or lunch, coffee or cocktails… there’s variety galore.
The council hosts a variety of events throughout the calendar year – from exhibitions, to street fairs, and performances for everyone in the family – the City of Prospects strongly promotes community.
