The local community is making Clovelly Road better for a day. We’re adding trees, plants, tables, chairs, art, music, slowing car speeds, and creating better, safer conditions for everyone – including kids, seniors, and people walking and cycling.

The aim is to bring the community together, to encourage everyone to re-imagine the streets, and build momentum for permanent improvements.
