WBP is located within the City of Casey, about 40 minutes drive from the Melbourne CBD. Perched on the edge of a basalt lake that was once a quarry, WBP is the perfect bird-viewing platform, with stunning views overlooking Berwick and beyond.
Used extensively by local residents, international visitors and families enjoying its picnic facilities, WBP had become a little rundown over the years. Knowing it was in need of a facelift, Casey Council committed money in the 2016 budget to give part of the park around the lake a much needed overhaul and contracted GRDC to complete the work.
Included in the upgrade was the construction of a new amphitheatre and other associated works that will allow the space to be used for weddings, carols by candlelight, yoga classes and more. The completed improvements have been very well received by park-goers.
GRDC was successful at tender stage for the design and construction works required at WBP. The scope of works conducted by GRDC included:
- Design and engineering
- Drainage lines
- Architectural concrete walls and stairs
- Timber platforms and substructure
- Supply and install LED lighting
- Handrails, tactile and stair nosings
