The Helena River Foreshore is a significant landscape where nature and ecology intersect with culture and history of the former railway workshops; a point where the City meets the River. The project will leverage this extraordinary position to create a new public open spaces for local residents, workers and visitors to enjoy the Helena River landscape.
Water Tank Park will be a new public open space adjacent to the existing workshops providing amenity and play spaces. The park is designed around the existing industrial infrastructure including the elevated water tank (1904) and main conduit (1904) running below the park. The park has been designed to celebrate the intersection of the industrial architecture and trades of the workshop and the hydrological, geological and botanical qualities of the Helena River.
