Riverside Park upgrade

As one of Moonee Valley’s most popular parks, we committed to creating a new landscape design for Riverside Park involving the community. The upgrade of Riverside Park is part of the implementation of the Maribyrnong River Master Plan.

Community consultations were undertaken in 2015 with a concept design adopted by Council on 15 December 2015. View the adopted concept design.

Work were completed in January 2018. The upgrade featured:

  • Relocating the car park
  • Improved play spaces including a new nature play area and additional play elements around the pirate ship
  • Improved picnic areas with barbeques, retaining the rotundas and adding a shelter near the pirate ship
  • Drainage and rain gardens to clean run off before it enters the river
  • New paths and seating
  • New trees and garden beds
  • Open lawn areas

Minor changes were made to the concept design to ensure the project was constructed within budgetary constraints including removal of the ping pong table, removal and changes to some play elements, removal of one drinking fountain, changes to paving material and some garden bed areas.
