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. We are investing in Zone 5, a 3.8-kilometre section of the project with our partners. 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.

When will the park open?

Greening the Pipeline is a complex project requiring extensive planning and consultation.

Parks along Zone 5 will be opened in stages from mid-2022.
