About the park
The Greening the Pipeline project aims to transform a decommissioned, heritage-listed sewer pipeline reserve into a 27-kilometre park connecting communities from Werribee to the city. Together with our partners, we are investing in Zone 5, a 3.8-kilometre section of the project. The linear park we will deliver is between Lawrie Emmins Reserve and Skeleton Creek.
It will provide more accessible green, open space for people in Melbourne's west and improve water management. Play areas, walking and bike trails will promote healthy outdoor activities.
Where will the park be located?
The parkland sits within the traditional lands of the Bunurong People of the Kulin Nation. It runs along the Federation Trail bike path, about 25 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD.
Government commitment to create a ring of parkland around Melbourne
2019 - 2022
Wyndham City Council is managing the project. We are working with key partners, stakeholders, Traditional Owners and the community to develop the vision for Greening the Pipeline.
Want to get involved?
Wyndham City Council will consult stakeholders about the parklands from mid-2021. Timing will depend on planning progress.
