The Baltic Triangle team is a step closer to transforming an underused space in the heart of the area into an urban park known as the Baltic Green.
The Baltic Triangle has seen an enormous amount of growth over the last ten years and over it’s history it has transformed from a traditional industrial area into a hub of creative and digital businesses. It’s also home to a raft of popular music venues, bars and restaurants. Since the opening of Independent Liverpool’s Baltic Market and the resurgence of Cain’s Brewery the area has become one of the most popular spots in the city and has also meant that the traditional Baltic Triangle area has expanded to include these venues.
Baltic Triangle Director, Tristan Brady-Jacobs, has been campaigning for the area which is bordered by Kitchen Street, Jamaica Street, St James Street and Bridgewater Street, to be used as an urban park and as a resource for the local community. It’s thanks to WARPLiverpool, Tristan’s charity dedicated to providing spaces for creatives in post-industrial areas who are working with the council to develop the area.
A green area is severely lacking in the area due to the large post-industrial warehouses, so the park would be a welcome escape for residents and workers in the vicinity. They are also aiming for the space to be used to host events, festivals, markets and even workshops.

Liverpool City Council has given the go ahead to the plans so now the Baltic Green needs volunteers resources, and of course more than anything, the funds to make it happen.
The Baltic Green will need £100 each month for liability insurance for events run on the green. Any additional funds would go towards events starting in Spring 2020.
