We're upgrading Gasworks Arts Park to improve the overall amenity, safety and experience for everyone using the park.

Gasworks Arts Park is an iconic and much-loved community space in our municipality with a unique combination of nature, arts and open space.

We’re upgrading the park to enhance the natural elements, play and art offerings in the Park, while improving amenity, planning for long term maintenance and managing the known contamination present at the site.

The upgrade will provide increased canopy cover, new landscaping, vegetation and tree planting, and also aims to retain as many mature trees as possible.

The site was once part of the former South Melbourne Gasworks and the park is contaminated with the by-products of gas production. The Victorian Government is managing the contamination investigations at Gasworks Arts Park and developing a Contamination Management Action Plan (CMAP) to ensure the park can be safely managed and continue as a public park into the future.
