MAYLANDS resident Kate Thomson loves the “creative and passionate” people in the Maylands community.

The Creative Maylands and Guildford Road Revival chairperson said businesses and the community had a lot of interest in people and diversity.

“A lot of the people in Creative Maylands are the business owners and the actual community and it really has the great diversity which is how Maylands works,” she said.

“Creative Maylands is looking at some potential pocket parks, a few greening projects around the Maylands town centre.”

Ms Thomson said she and her family had lived in the suburb for decades.

“Mum moved back up here about three years ago but my great grandfather had a house on the other side of the tracks in Maylands,” she said.

“My grandfather grew up over there so we have kind of done a whole circle and come back.”

Ms Thomson said she enjoyed going to public open spaces because Maylands had a “built-up” environment.

“I go down to Riverside Gardens – I love it down there and I take my dog Agent Carter down there,” she said.

“It is so good to have such a big open area and on the river; it is brilliant… so close to where we are.”
