CYPRESS VIEWS WETLAND
Caroline Springs, Victoria
||The wetland features an expansive open body of water, a vegetated habitat island and heavily planted wetland areas, which filter and store storm water runoff. A large viewing deck, ‘gabion’ wall and formal concrete block revetment wall sit adjacent to and overlook the main water body, with a smaller, second viewing deck set within the planted wetland area. A feature curved pedestrian
||boardwalk provides a pedestrian crossing point across the wetland and a contrast to the natural setting. Extensive indigenous mass planting, seating areas, feature rock work, a galvanised steel shelter, ‘gabion’ bollards and open lawn areas provide a range of outdoor recreation opportunities adjacent to the wetland.
