Project Update

We're working with the Public Art Commission from Deakin University to help conduct community workshops, consultations and surveys to hear what kind of public art you would like to see represented in permanent and temporary contexts along the Zone 5 section of the Federation Trail (between Skeleton Creek and Forsyth Rd).

In this zone along the historic sewer outfall, there are a number of exciting opportunities for temporary and permanent public artworks.

How can you be involved?

Two workshops will be held in March where you can learn about the project and share your thoughts about the type of public are you want to see.

Click on the Eventbrite links below to register for an online Zoom session.

Please note, local creatives and artists are welcome to attend both sessions.

About Zone 5

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and comments on the Zone 5 landscape design, it's great to hear that there is good support for this project.

Zone 5 is ready to go. We’re building new parkland along the Main Outfall Sewer (MOS) reserve, including new play spaces, community events lawn, community gardens, walking trails, garden beds and upgrading the Federation Trail.

This exciting project is part of the Greening the Pipeline initiative - a partnership between Melbourne Water, Wyndham City Council, Greater Western Water, Department of Transport and supported by Greening the West.

The Greening the Pipeline Zone 5 landscape design builds on numerous engagements with the local community, indigenous groups and stakeholders in the development of the Zone 5 masterplan. It presents a vision for community connection: where community is connected to each other, to nature and to water while delivering a unique linear recreational space.

At the centre of the landscape design is the celebration of the historical and scientific significance of the MOS. Healthy tree canopy and cool green spaces are irrigated with treated storm water stored in the MOS. The parkland and play spaces inspire nature play around the theme of water.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through the Suburban Parks Program.

There will be more chances for you to get involved in this project soon. 'Follow' this page to stay updated as this project progresses.
