Restora­tion works turn tide at Millers Pool

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE pub­lic is ex­pected to ben­e­fit now that restora­tion works at Millers Pool in South Perth have been com­pleted.

A part of the City’s South Perth fore­shore strat­egy and man­age­ment plan, the pro­ject aimed to im­prove amenity, ac­cess and the nat­u­ral fea­tures of the Mill Point fore­shore.

Work started in Septem­ber and was com­pleted in De­cem­ber.

Land­scape, en­vi­ron­men­tal and amenity im­prove­ments in­clude pic­nic and seat­ing areas, a board­walk and small view­ing jetty across the pool and plant­ing of na­tive vege­ta­tion and trees.

The view to­wards the Old Mill has been opened up, high­lighted by an av­enue of trees. A new path net­work con­nects the pool with a fore­shore walk from the Es­planade to join with the re­cently com­pleted paths and pic­nic areas west of the Nar­rows Bridge.

The new car park uses wa­ter sen­si­tive ur­ban de­sign prin­ci­ples to treat storm wa­ter run-off be­fore it en­ters Millers Pool and the Swan River.

Im­prove­ments all round at Millers Pool af­ter restora­tion works.
