A new park will be created in Williams Landing along a 100 metre section of the Main Outfall Sewer Reserve next to the Federation Bicycle Trail.

The park will be funded by a grant received by Melbourne Water, Wyndham Council, City West Water and VicRoads.

Two consultation sessions were held with the local community in late April on what should be included in the park such as vegetation, seating, shade, play areas, gym equipment and bike racks.

You can also provide feedback on the design via survey.

The new park is the pilot site for the Greening the Pipeline project. It aims to green the Federation Bicycle Trail and Main Outfall Sewer reserve to increase community connection, help with urban cooling and provides alternative water use. It will revitalise the entire 27 kilometre Main Outfall Sewer reserve, from Millers Road in Brooklyn to the Western Treatment Plant in Werribee, into a natural and vibrant place for neighbours to meet, play and relax.

The Main Outfall Sewer was constructed in the 1890s and was the largest civil engineering project ever undertaken in Victoria at the time, providing a vital link in the sewerage system of Melbourne.

This project is endorsed by Greening the West and you can find out more about Greening the Pipeline.
