About the project

The City of Vincent has undertaken a 14-year plan to convert 25 turfed areas around the City in to native parks.
The Eco-Zoning project started in February 2011 as part of the City’s Water Conservation Plan.
Several projects have already been completed including the Keith Frame Reserve, Loftus Median Strip and Kyilla Park.

These eco-zoned areas are designed to be self-sufficient within one or two years of installation, meaning they'll require little to no watering other than natural rainfall. Native plants will replace the current turf, requiring less water, less fertiliser and less maintenance because they're perfect for local conditions. Not only will this reduce the spread of weeds, it will offer a more suitable habitat for local wildlife.

This project is not about adding to the volume of green space in the City, it’s about rethinking the ones already there, and ensuring they evolve to enable a more sustainable future.
