About the project

The City of Melbourne created a new open space in North Melbourne, expanding the park from 530m² to approximately 5000m².
To deliver its 2012 Open Space Strategy, the City of Melbourne created a new open space in North Melbourne, expanding the park from 530m² to approximately 5000m².

The new park has lawn areas, paths, a raised timber deck walkway, garden beds, seating, lighting and 28 new trees. This not only provides more space for informal recreation, it improves pedestrian, cyclist and motorist safety in this area by reducing the crossing distance for pedestrians from 23m down to 8m.

More trees in the area also help to provide shade and biodiversity, while assisting with storm water management.

It's a great place for the community to come together and enjoy a natural urban landscape.
