Abbott Park waterway upgrade

  • Project typeEnvironment
  • Project scheduleConcept design: current to March 2024

We are developing a concept to convert Abbott Park's existing concrete drainage channel into a more natural waterway.

The waterway would be designed to:

  • reinstate native vegetation and shade in the park
  • help cool the surrounding area
  • provide more native habitat for wildlife
  • improve catchment water quality.

The project involves removing the existing concrete surface drain and replacing it with a natural meandering waterway with native plantings. The new natural waterway will have similar characteristics to the original waterway before it was converted into a drainage channel many years ago.
