Pop up bar @ Main Street Pharmacy

To kick off Spring and shake off the lockdown blues, we held a pop up bar. Volunteers worked hard to make this a fun event featuring Sondrea Espresso Martinis. The community response was fabulous. Lots of patrons enjoyed a bite to eat at local eateries along Main Street before, after or during this event.

Feed the Street

Our ongoing Feed the Street project looks for opportunities to establish more gardens on Main Street. This has seen planter boxes set up at both our fantastic pharmacies, planted with herbs for enjoyment by the local community. We’ll keep looking for more opportunities to grow on Main Street!

Street Libraries

In 2019, the Main Street Co-op established four street libraries across Main Street. One has a permanent home at Starbright Early Learning, with the others hosted by local businesses along the strip. These libraries are available for the community to take and donate books, and are currently located within the Main Street Compounding Pharmacy, Osborne Park Hotel, and Eyeconik Optometrists.

Over the years, we have had a space at the Osborne Park Show, enjoying a great day out and engaging with the community. In 2019, we had fun with kids activities and demonstrations from local businesses – including our Main Street Compounding Pharmacy and The Little Italian School.

Community Consultation

Between September and October 2017 we put out a community survey to better understand the needs and wants of the community. The findings of the survey helped us develop our strategic action plan for activating Main Street. Read the report.

In 2020, we undertook a community survey to inform recommendations made to the City of Stirling about a future public square on Main Street. Read the report.

Public art mural

Public Art Murals

A number of vacant walls along Main Street provided the perfect canvas for vibrant street art pieces by Perth artists including Brenton See, Steven Buckles and Rebecca Cool. These art pieces have added some much needed colour to the strip and reflect the history and culture of Main Street and the Osborne Park area.

Branding and signage

Branding and Signage

Our Main Street brand reflects the area’s identity as a welcoming village hub and destination for food, wine, entertainment and shopping, while also referencing our vision of breathing new life into Main Street. The signs can be seen at the entry points to the main cafe/retail strip at around Eldorado Street to the north and Federal Street to the south.

Slowing down traffic

40km/h speed zone

A 40km/h speed limit zone along Main Street is now in place. This is an important first step towards making the area more pedestrian friendly and reducing traffic speeds through the Main Street precinct.
