Riverbend Refuge

A riparian ecological restoration exemplar project in collaboration with Greening the Rubble along a small stretch of ‘Green Spine’ river bank on River Road just south of Lois Place, demonstrating what’s possible from city to sea.  

The project is designed to raise awareness via signage of the value of native riparian planting in terms of bank stabilisation, discouraging pest species, improving stormwater run-off and enhancing amenity value.

Undertaken in Spring 2018, 500 native plants were planted with support from volunteers from Richmond Community Garden to enhance view shafts from benches and picnic tables that are intended for future installation.
