The food truck park faces the eastern car park has the tall walls have been decorated with street art bursting with life and colour. There’s soft synthetic grass to sit on, picnic tables and benches, a ping pong table and plenty of room to park a pram or let the kids roam. Toaccount for Melbourne’s mercurial weather there’s a small undercover area near the bar.
