Community enhancing Westgate Park's wetlands to improve the health of Port Phillip Bay (2001)
Friends of Westgate Park Inc.
Project duration: 2017-2019
Location: Port Melbourne
Westgate Park is a series of reclaimed sites near the mouth of the Yarra River which has taken work to rehabilitate. The park includes 1.5 Ha of land which was previously a drainage channel and road reserve which is currently of little environmental value. This project will enable removal of litter, improvements to the drainage channel and planting the area with indigenous plants which would have been in sandbelt area around Port Phillip Bay.
