Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

For the past six years, local volunteers have transformed Ferris Lane into a neighbourhood garden with furniture, potted plants and sculptures. Your neighbours have created what is now affectionately known as, Ferris Lane the Magic Lane.

What’s happening?

The creator has approached Council requesting support. Council can permanently close the road to protect the space and do works to manage storm water runoff. A tap has already been installed to assist with watering.
