Greening Brooklyn

The Greening Brooklyn project is designed to enhance and beautify Pipeline Reserve. The project will be delivered by Hobson's Bay City Council parks department.

This project is funded by Council and the Victorian Government through funding received from the West Gate Tunnel Project's West Gate Neighborhood Fund.

In coming months, the section of the Federation Trail route through Pipeline Reserve will be upgraded as part of the West Gate Tunnel Project joint venture, including an additional 5000 plants in the reserve. In addition to planting, works will include the beautification of both the entrances to the reserve, increasing available seating, finger signages and solar lighting along the reserve.
