Small parks of Beacon Cove

The turf areas in the following reserves are soon to be upgraded: Waterfront Place (given the high profile of this location for metropolitan and international visitors, this is a priority), Mariposa Place, Beacon Vista Park, Park Square and Australis Circuit.
The turf will be installed in mid to late February. The installation period for warm season grasses is during the warmer periods so that the grass can grow and establish. The grass type is kikuyu and has been successfully established in the Danks Street median, and the Raglan/Station St new parkland in the Port Melbourne area.
The areas will be established using recycled water for irrigation over a 6 week period.
