“Promenade Seating” for Garden for the Future - Bendigo Botanic Gardens

BNDCE contributed $20,000 to the new Garden for fhe Future Promenade Seating project which was completed in July 2019. This is our second investment to the Bendigo Botanic Gardens, a wonderful community asset.

The promenade seating is approximately 133 metres of timber seating, equivalent to 66 park benches and curves along the walking path in the gardens. One seating curve follows the creek side path, whilst the other is on the roadside curve near the front entrance.

The seating is an environmentally friendly project, built from approximately 700 liner metres of reclaimed redgum from the trees that were removed from the Ravenswood Interchange project on the Calder Freeway.

The Promenade seating was a collaborative project. Thanks to partnerships with: Bendigo Northern District Community Enterprise, Friends of the Bendigo Botanic Gardens, Greater City of Bendigo and Regional Roads Victoria.

We invite the broader community to visit this wonderful asset, to view the development of the plants, wander the paths and take a rest on the amazing new seating.
