TOUR 2: Greening the Pipeline & Re-imagining Your Creek - Transforming old into new

Departing from  10.00am

Two tours for the price one! We’ll start at Greening the Pipeline’s Pilot Park at Williams Landing to see an area transformed into a vibrant open space with an integrated stormwater system. Then we’ll walk along the Federation Trail and see the old Main Outfall Sewer which is heritage-listed, surrounded by housing on each side and acting as a barrier. There will be a stop at Arndell Park to showcase the potential opportunity of linking the reserve to an existing community space and nearby school. We’ll then continue the walk to the Skeleton Creek aqueduct, a magnificent structure that was built in the 1890s, overlooking the Skeleton Creek reserve.

Next, we’ll take you to our Reimagining Your Creek sites where Melbourne Water and its partners are looking to transform urban waterways (Forsyth Road Drain and Arnolds Creek) to more natural waterways with desirable, open spaces where people can interact with nature in cooler, greener, healthier environments.
