New park for Seafarers Rest

New park for Seafarers Rest Image

The City of Melbourne is now seeking the com- munity’s feedback on the designs of a new 3500 sqm park at Seafarers Rest in Docklands.

A motion went before councillors at the Future Melbourne Committee (FMC) meeting on June 2 to consider the designs and begin public consultation for a period of six weeks from June 3.

Located next to the historic Mission to Seafarers building on Flinders St, the $5 million park is a joint venture between developer Riverlee, the City of Melbourne and the state government.

The new public park, designed by Oculus Landscape Architecture, forms part of Riverlee’s Seafarer’s development, which will restore the heritage goods shed and wharf and construct a mixed-use building comprising apartments, a hotel and retail.

The report from council management on June 2 said that the design of the new park considered its location within the Dockland historic maritime precinct and that, where appropriate, proposed “the inclusion of local maritime artefacts”

The new park will be handed over to the council to manage once completed in conjunction with Riverlee’s development in 2023.
