New outdoor space
30 Mar 2017
Work has started on the new open space on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Collins St.
Places Victoria is delivering the upgrades, which will include new outdoor exercise stations, landscaping, footpaths to encourage more visitors, workers and residents to use the space.
The site is also home to MPavilion 2015 and the Hub@Docklands Community Centre.
Places Victoria’s general manager precincts, Simon Wilson, said the works would soon be starting and were expected to be completed by mid-2017.
“This upgrade will complement the existing recreation opportunities at the adjacent sports courts and provide welcoming spaces for people to visit,” he said.
The work will include new footpaths to connect Waterview Walk and Harbour Esplanade, the addition of viewing areas next to the sports courts and an outdoor exercise station.
The plans for the area have been developed following feedback from the community and the City of Melbourne and meet the aspirations identified by the community as part of the Docklands Community and Place Plan (2012) for more places for people and activity.
