Video: South Belfast residents transform alleyway into a hub for community

The streets just behind Queen’s University in Belfast have often made the headlines for all the wrong reasons but a group of local people have been determined to make their environment a shining example of what can be done with vision, community spirit and green fingers!

People living in College Park Avenue, University Avenue and Rugby Road persuaded Belfast City Council to gate their alleyway and transform it with flowers, wall murals, brightly painted gates and fences, cobblestones, relaxed seating, bird feeders, hopscotch and more, including plans for mosaics created by University of Ulster art students.
