Description

A design that showcases the potential of disused infrastructure in providing community open space with an integrated stormwater design.

Greening the Pipeline is the transformation of a heritage listed Main Outfall Sewer reserve into a 27km linear park in Melbourne’s west. The project is delivered through organisational partnerships (Melbourne Water, Wyndham City Council, City West Water, VicRoads), community engagement, and supported by the Greening the West initiative.

The Williams Landing Pilot Park is the first project of Greening the Pipeline, which has transformed a section of the heritage-listed Main Outfall Sewer (MOS) reserve into a local parkland which demonstrates how the transformation can connect the community, provide additional recreational opportunities, provide urban cooling and treat and use urban stormwater for irrigation.
