Prince Alfred Park is about to get a whole lot more colourful!
In 2012, 30,000 people gathered in Prince Alfred Park to show support for the Australian marriage law proposal. Once the law had been passed, a day which Aussies will remember well, that part of the park was renamed Equality Green. Three years later, Sydney City has proposed commemorating this amazing moment with a beautiful rainbow path, running alongside the famous Equality Green. [Photo: @SHCPinc, Facebook]
It’s so important that LGBTQI+ Australians feel safe and feel acknowledged in the architecture and design of our city. Just as marriage equality was a significant step toward equality in Australia, we cannot underestimate the power of representation in the landscape.
A stunning, curved rainbow path 90 metres long should be a fantastic addition to this beautiful park and the idea was proposed by Surry Hills Creative Precinct. The plans will be open for community feedback until 5 pm on November 29.
