Looking at the arbor from Moorefields Road.

I have looked in passing at this green arbor along Moorefields Road Kingsgrove often while driving past, but recently decided to stop & have a closer look.

A vine has been grown over a trellis structure to create a very interesting archway into an unnamed pocket park at the end of Rolestone Avenue, which ends in a cul-de-sac.   The vine covered arbor makes this green space peaceful because the main road is buffered by the vines & your attention is taken elsewhere.   Most vines bloom, so this would be very nice while happening.

The arbor would also provide habitat & safety for wildlife.

I have not seen anything like this green entrance in a public space & like it a lot. It is a clever idea by Rockdale Council & one that I could see used successfully elsewhere, especially where heavy traffic is an issue.
