Pooling Transit Caulfield

What role can a public pool play in integrating diverse communities within transit oriented development?

A train-line is a backyard fence restricting each neighbouring suburb’s social interaction on their respective side. A train-station, with its interconnected public transport network, is the communal public footpath attracting both neighbours, yet is a transitional space providing minute time for a cuppa. Transit Oriented Development plans on either side of Caulfield Station highlight this backyard fence, creating public spaces for each neighbor, yet fails to create a communal public space that attracts both. This scheme maximizes the potential of a public pool within Caulfield Station with its integrated informal public spaces as the additional attractor for both neighbours to turn a cuppa into a lunch break.
