Maindee Triangle opposite the library on Chepstow Road is a rare green space and community facility in the heart of the Maindee community. Following an asset transfer from Newport City Council in March 2021, Maindee Unlimited now have a lease for 99 years thereby securing the land and buildings for Maindee into the future. We have worked with KHBT Architects to develop the designs and renovations that are taking place this Spring/Summer
The former toilet block will house new public toilet facilities as well as a small community cafe and meeting space with an outdoor covered area. The outdoor garden will be planted with wildlife and pollinator-friendly plants and vegetables. It will be a play-friendly space with a climbing wall. We want this to be a clean and safe community garden - a hub for people and nature which is used and enjoyed by all in our community.
We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to be involved in activities such as:
- Hiring the community room
- Using the Triangle for indoor/outdoor events
- Running markets and trading
- Helping out with children’s play events
- Helping out with gardening and looking after the green space
