Dining and entertainment PLUS for Christmas
CHRISTMAS arrives early for shoppers at Westpoint, Blacktown, with the completion of its $19M-dollar dining precinct upgrade, transforming the centre’s top level into a world-class family dining and entertainment destination.
Opening on December 14, the precinct will feature a whole level of refurbished recreational spaces surrounding retail, including HOYTS Cinema, Zone Bowling and a new format Timezone.
Adding to the mix is the arrival of indoor play centre Chou Chou Bebe and popular axe-throwing venue Kiss My Axe plus a new Club Lime Gym and WOTSO, a modern co-working space.
Serving the growing population in Western Sydney, Westpoint customers can not only shop at the centre’s 300 speciality stores, but they can also enjoy the renewed level four dining offer boasting cuisines from around the globe, including the recently opened Grill’d restaurant and highly popular Volcanos steakhouse.
Adding to the dining and entertainment experience, the precinct will also feature a series of commissioned art installations including colourful murals, sculptures and a light display that will form a part of the Blacktown City Art Walk.
For visitors of all ages, the precinct will also feature a brand-new outdoor playground and beautiful gardens.
Westpoint Centre Manager, Carly Xerri, is excited to launch the refreshed level four precinct and said the new additions will encourage thousands of local shoppers to visit the centre over the festive season.
“The opening of the centre’s upgraded level four precinct comes at a perfect time for Christmas, with families actively seeking opportunities to connect and enjoy experiences together, like seeing a movie, bowling or dining out. With the commencement of the January school holidays shortly, it’s also a great time to take the kids to a play-centre or spend time in the new inviting outdoor space and playground,” said Xerri.
“We’ve taken a community-first approach to upgrading our dining and entertainment precinct. We saw there was an opportunity to bring more family-friendly spaces to the centre, as well as chance to showcase six incredible artists, most of whom are based in Sydney.
“The combined dining, entertainment and art experiences create a well-rounded shopping experience for young families, teens and the many multicultural communities that call Blacktown and surrounds their home.”
Customers can enjoy various art pieces ranging from hand-painted murals and sculptures through to digital artwork and lighting installations.
One of the highlights is a 150sqm botanical mural painted by award winning artist George Rose, who has worked with international clients including Disney, Instagram and Tik Tok.
"My mural showcases the natural beauty of Blacktown, depicting some of the most popular native plants in the region. The aim of art is to educate people and inspire conversations, so I hope people are able to learn a bit about Blacktown and its unique environment through my art,” said Rose.
‘Connection’ was the theme that inspired the precinct design, with the project team acknowledging that shopping centres are an important part of the social fabric of a community where customers feel ownership and connection to their local centre.
The new level four precinct will be a hub of activity throughout the holidays, commencing with the Christmas wonderland of Snowfest on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 of December. The free evening event includes a DJ and live music, roaming entertainment, magical snowfall, Christmas characters, festive face painting, hip hop dancers and special giveaways.
