Goyder Square Redevelopment

About the Project

As part of Palmerston's City Centre Master Plan, Goyder Square - located in front of the Palmerston Library will be connected with the Water Tower Park to create a vibrant new social hub where residents are able to meet, relax and enjoy Palmerston's tropical lifestyle.

The redevelopment of Goyder Square will feature landscaping designed to ensure the new-look square will grow into a shady, green haven for residents. It will also provide new infrastructure for the popular Palmerston Markets, as well as a new community venue to hold events.

Goyder Square Stage 1 - Completed

Stage 1 of the Goyder Square redevelopment was completed in April 2014. Stage 1 was part of the sequenced construction activity to remove the remnants of Goyder Hill, garden beds and the roundabout to facilitate the widening of The Boulevard.

Goyder Square Stage 2 - Completed

Stage 2 of the Goyder Square redevelopment was completed in December 2015. Key features of the redevelopment include a continuous open space link from Goyder Square to the Water Tower park, tree lined paths, open grassed area to support a range of recreational activities, an interactive water feature, a fenced playground, a shade structure and performance space to hold community events, outdoor seating, and encourages and supports al fresco dining and of course a new convenient layout for the Palmerston Markets with plenty of formal and informal seating for diners.
