In response to council’s Draft Public Space Strategy, PECAN developed the Green Line project.
The Green Line is a linear park that follows the route of the rail corridor from Alma Park to Elsternwick Nature Reserve. The Green Line connects Alma Park to the Balaclava Precinct, and then continues south east through Ripponlea to Elsternwick Station and on to Elsternwick Nature Reserve.
The route of the Green Line uses existing public open space and walking paths, and expands these by connecting, linking and rehabilitating including by retiring on-street carparking in key areas.
The Green Line will improve public accessibility through St Kilda East and Ripponlea, increase habitat for biodiversity and tree canopy cover.
