The fifth listening post is at Gregory Street

This listening post is on Gregory Street over looking the Urban Park. Gregory Street is named after a well loved resident called Reg Gregory who was passionate about his community. He volunteered his time well into his eighties, he was in charge of the Redfield boy’s brigade, a local magistrate and was responsible for setting up the Healthy Places Happy People committee which went on to build the Wellspring Healthy Living Centre. Reg was nominated by other residents to have the road named after him.

Here you can see artist, David Cottrell’s idea called Surface Tension on the street design. The idea is blur the boundaries between different landowners and it has created a street which has received favourable comments from local residents.
