Trade a Park No One Uses for a Useful Carpark

The Woody Point Village has rapidly become more and more popular in recent years. On any given weekend you will find that all the on and off street parking is completely full. With more high-rise developments, shops and cafe’s planned in the future this problem is only going to get worse.

Just behind the Woody Point Village shops and Belvedere hotel there is a small park called Lion’s Park. I have never once seen a person in that park. It’s really just a space for an open air storm water drain to flow.

Instead of being wasted space, this space could be used for a multi-level carpark. Two covered levels and 1 open air level would provide a huge boost to the parking capacity of the area. I know carparks aren’t popular, but they are a necessary evil. The Lions Park location is close enough to Woody Point Village to significantly help the area out, with no significant loss of amenity.
