Experiments to bring new life to Haig Park

Canberrans will get to experience what a revitalised Haig Park could be like thanks to a new project that will test potential improvements, activities and events over the next six months. The City Renewal Authority has appointed a University of Canberra led consortium, which includes Tait Network, Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centre, and Dionysus, to implement a range of events, activities and light-touch park improvements that could be made permanent if successful.
