This place activation project has been instigated in response to the shared visions of the Byron Bay Arts and Industrial
Estate Precinct Plan. The Pocket Park, a key action from the plan was designed with community input by Design Team Ink for Byron Shire Council as a multi-purpose green space to support the busy business and residential community and also as space for ‘place activation’ events such as ‘Springtime Play @ the Pocket Park’ – a series of lunchtime circus, music and visual arts events for children. The concept repurposes materials and items found at Council’s depot to create a green pocket in a busy industrial precinct. The park was constructed with a very small budget.
As an AILA Registered Landscape Architect and a true Northern Rivers local, Sheryn enjoys spending time with her young family on the farm and sweating it out in the forests mountain biking and running. It is the ability to enjoy these and other experiences within a diversity of natural, rural and culturally enriched urban settings that drive her deep passion for design, the landscape, and the village character of the region.
