Crown St Mall Celebrates its 25th Birthday with a Family Fun Day
About 25 years ago many city centres in Australia closed their main shopping streets to vehicle traffic and turned them into pedestrian malls with the aim of making people movement easier. Some pedestrian malls have worked well, whilst others have been dismal failures and have since been converted back to streets allowing vehicular traffic.
One Mall that has worked well is the Crown Street Mall in the NSW Illawarra city of Wollongong. Factors leading to its success include the major shopping centres on either side of the mall, its covering to keep out rain, attractive water features, the seating provided, and the free entertainment provided in the Mall Amphitheatre on a regular basis.
The Crown Street Mall will celebrate its 25th Birthday on Saturday 15th October 2011 with a special Family Fun Day from 11am to 3pm.
RIDES & ACTIVITIES on the day will include:- free cup n saucer rides, free Matilda's Farmyard, nursery animals, free swan ride, free chair-o-plane ride, free jumping castle, free horse-o-plane ride, free face painting, free balloon animals, meet Happy Dragon, ozz ball water fun, trampoline bungee, clowns and sideshow games.
