Faulkner Civic Precinct Ornamental Lakes Renewal

The Ornamental Lakes infrastructure located in Faulkner Park is due for renewal, so we’re using this opportunity to explore ways to evolve the surrounding open space to provide more benefits and enjoyment for our community.

We want to hear your thoughts on how you use the area to help guide the design concept and future renewal of this shared community space. Our community survey closed on 1 September 2023.

Project Background:

The Ornamental Lakes (Lakes) were constructed in 1970 to serve as a compensation drainage basin for the Water Corporation's South Belmont Main Drain and provide a feature in Faulkner Park for the community to enjoy.

While the existing Lake infrastructure has served its purpose well for the past 50 years, it has deteriorated over time and requires renewal in order to meet its current and future functional requirements.

This provides an opportunity for us to explore design features and elements in the area surrounding the Lakes, ensuring a vibrant and attractive shared space for many years to come. This includes the integration of The Glasshouse building into the Precinct, and focus on pedestrian connectivity, social cohesion and active wellness.
