Museum Plaza

Museum Plaza features a tree lined avenue which provides ample shade for summer events.

The heritage building outlook, large grassed zones, ample park bench seating and children’s playspace make it well suited to family friendly events, markets, food events, music and school or group activities. The site may also be used in conjunction with Central Square for larger markets or displays such as car shows.
