Harmony Square is Dandenong’s civic heart located centrally in Lonsdale Street and nestled amongst award winning public amenities including the Library, council offices and Drum Theatre. 

The public square is a generous and welcoming community square, an exceptional meeting place and focal point for large scale outdoor events for up to 2500 people. On a day to day basis it’s a shared communal space with a diversity of places to sit and relax on architecturally designed seating or the rolling green lawns. Harmony Square is an exemplar of urban design combining a large digital LCD screen which will play host to locally produced film content as well as content from further afield; trees and landscaping; retail areas and cafes; intricately designed artful paving.

Harmony Square completes the well-lit pedestrian friendly connection from the station to central Dandenong’s main retail and commercial area. The square is importantly located opposite the Drum Theatre (Dandenong Town Hall), the city’s most recognisable historic landmark.
