The Northern Grampians Shire Council has announced the vacant lot at 99 Grampians Road in Halls Gap will become a new temporary community general-use space.
The council want to use the land as a year-long temporary space for community events and activities, including outdoor movies.
Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Murray Emerson, said the new park will add to the Halls Gap streetscape.
"Council is very pleased to be able to utilise this prime piece of land for something the whole community can use and benefit from," he said.
"We know Halls Gap businesses in particular have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic and we are hopeful this activation space/pop-up park/outdoor dining area will allow for more people to take advantage of the wonderful offerings of the town.
"I encourage everyone to come along to the upcoming information session about the project to make sure the community's needs are reflected in the park's design."
The council has scheduled a meeting on Saturday, March 27 from 2pm to 3pm at 99 Grampians Road Halls Gap where the public can meet the Project Manager Lisa Whyte, and landscape architect Felicity Brown to view and discuss the concept design for the park.
Northern Grampians Shire Council have engaged Horsham landscape artist Felicity Brown from Laimiga design studio to create an area that includes native plants and nature elements that fits with the Halls Gap environment.
Funding for the development will be funded by a grant from Business Victoria under the State Government's Outdoor Dining Package.
