Take a seat in the Shunting Yard, relax in the shade under the canopy, interact with the Water Line misting feature and explore artwork by Stuart Green.

You can also enjoy the landscaping, paving, seating and water fountains at Memorial Gardens, which has created a relaxing place to sit and admire the majestic Workshops buildings. The Peace Memorial, surrounded by a rose garden, commemorates the 95 railway workers who enlisted from The Workshops and died in World War I and World War II.  

Railway Square will continue to become a lively public space surrounded by new cafes, shops, restaurants and bars.

Also at the square you can enjoy the Water Line Exhibit, a linear misting and lighting feature that references the history of steam engines and movement of trains through the space. You can experience the exhibit four times within each two hour operating time window.
