The City of Melbourne is working in partnership the Victorian Government, developer Riverlee and landscape architects Oculus to create a new park at Seafarers Rest in Docklands. This is one of eight new parks we’re creating for Melbourne by 2020.
The park is located on the north bank of the Yarra River between The Mission to Seafarers heritage building and the Seafarers Bridge, and will:
- increase pedestrian and bicycle access
- retain existing trees
- protect neighbouring heritage sites
A larger project to build a new 17-level mixed use development and restore the neighbouring wharf shed and crane is also underway near the park.
We are working with our partners to shape a concept for the new park, and are seeking community feedback to guide the design brief. Tell us what you would like to see in Seafarers Rest Park by completing the feedback form below.
Community consultation is open from 19 November to 14 December 2018.
