Project Profile and brief

Wilson Botanic Park is located within the City of Casey; about 40 minute drive from Melbourne CBD. Perched on the edge of the basalt lake where it was once a quarry it provides perfect bird viewing over Berwick and beyond. The park is extensively used by local residents, international visitors and families enjoying its picnic facilities. Council committed money is the this year’s budget to give part of the park around the lake a well needed face lift.
