Pubic Art Installation
Pipedreams by renowned Australian public sculptor and designer, Matthew Harding stands 8 metres high and 12 metres wide and is sculptured from fabricated marine grade stainless steel.
From dusk until midnight this striking piece of public art comes to life by incorporating changing patterns of light.
The nature playspace was designed to connect children and their families with nature. The theme ‘Layers of Country’ was developed by Wurundjeri artist Mandy Nicholson. The play elements are designed to reflect the natural and industrial history of the surrounding parkland. Two play towers sit within the natural bush and provide challenge for all ages.
The playground features experiences for all abilities and encourages movement, climbing, sand and water play, natural exploration and discovery which was funded by a grant from the Victoria Government. To view the playground area see take a look at the photo gallery at the bottom of this page.
Pipemakers park is home to the Eco-Museum which focuses on the industrial, environmental, social and Indigenous history of the area.
