Gardens and possibly murals will brighten up the Union Street eyesore otherwise known as the South Lismore pump station.
Lismore city council has been working with South Lismore business owners to come up with ideas to make the sight of the pump station less messy industrial.
Council have moved the fence in front of the South Lismore pump station to gain some community land and plant a garden and have also closed off a driveway into the pump station, creating two new parking spaces for customers.
‘We’ve taken on board what local people said to beautify this spot – it’s a lovely little green corner now and will make the street look much prettier once the natives grow up,’ Lismore City Council’s Parks and Gardens Coordinator Marcus Ellison said
Council planted ground covers as well as three different Callistemon varieties to ensure flowers throughout the year and screen the pump station.
‘Council is currently building a new roundabout on the corner of Union and Casino Streets which will include new garden beds, so this extends that a little and the whole area will look rejuvenated. It’s nice to see a bit of love for South Lismore following the flood.’
