Truganina Coastal Parklands Altona

Trug SwampQueen Street, Altona Meadows – Melways 208: K3
Truganina Park is a 'recycled landscape' created on the site of the former Altona Tip.

A feature of the park is the 100 Steps to Federation, a stone staircase made of basalt rock recycled from when the area was a clean-fill tip. At the summit of the 17 metre high mound is a viewing area that provides extensive views of the local coast. On a clear day, the City and Port Phillip Heads are visible.

The sculpture at the summit is titled 'Time Beacon' and is by artist Cameron Robbins. Construction of the park is approximately two-thirds complete.

A concrete stormwater drain through the park, which takes stormwater from the adjacent residential area of Altona Meadows, was restructured to form a filtration wetland, in which the stormwater is naturally cleaned before being discharged to Port Phillip Bay.
