Mountain Gate Place Program

Mountain Gate Shopping Centre is recognised by Council as being one of the key local shopping areas in the City of Knox. As part of the Mountain Gate Place Program, a concept Masterplan (PDF) has been developed in 2013 which outlines broad medium and long term goals for the Centre. It also identifies six components (PDF) which are important to the character and function of the Centre.

Six Components of Mountain Gate as identified:

1. Mountain Gate Town Square.
2. Mountain Gate Cruiseway.
3. Transport and Facilities Hub.
4. Carpark.
5. Mountain Gate Parkland.
6. Mountain Gate Frontages.

Preparation of the Concept Masterplan for the reserve in 2017-18

As part of the Mountain Gate Place Program, Council has prepared a concept Masterplan for the existing reserve at the western end of Mountain Gate Shopping Centre.

The concept Masterplan is now open for comments and feedback. The final Masterplan will be approved by Council in late 2017. It is anticipated that work on the park will begin in mid 2018.

Submissions of comment are open until close of business on Friday 27 October 2017.

Works undertaken in 2015

In 2015, Council allocated $1.4 million to upgrade the Cruiseway and create a Town Square (components 1 and 2). The upgrade included:

  • A new footpath designed for functional safety;
  • New garden beds with more shade trees;
  • A new Town Square to make meeting friends easier;
  • New street furniture to make shopping easier and more convenient; and
  • A new play area to entertain the children with the theme of growing produce, transporting it to the shops and selling it.

The works also included a new toilet block with an upgraded pedestrian crossing to it. In addition a new locally inspired art mural transformed the wall of The Euro Bakehouse Cafe. This was part of the Wall to Wall Mentoring Program which included six year 10 students from Fairhills High School working with Andrew Bourke, a renowned international artist. The mural was developed with input from the Mountain Gate Business Association as well.
