Yamagata garden and riverside walk

Concept designs for the Yamagata Japanese Garden and Riverside Walk are out for public comment.

Yamagata Garden
The Yamagata Japanese Garden will sit proudly atop the bank of the Little Murray River, nestled into an existing cluster of mature trees at the southern entrance to the Big 4 Riverside Park.

To be opened in 2020, it will highlight and reinforce the commitment, growth of understanding and friendship that has evolved between Swan Hill and Yamagata, since its sister-city relationship began in 1980.

The design combines traditional Japanese garden style and the rural Australian landscape to create a contemporary public garden.

Riverside Walk
We also have designs for a new shared pathway and additional car parking.

These designs are for an extension to the riverfront walk that will connect the recently constructed shared path at the southern end of the Pioneer Settlement to the existing path at the Big 4 Riverside Caravan Park.

The path will include sections of boardwalk and shared access for pedestrians and cyclists, making it easier to navigate and improving the look of the area.

The project will also incorporate the development of much need new car parking along Monash Drive, opposite the Pioneer Settlement and a new raised pedestrian crossing.
