The floating pontoon will encourage recreational fishing and boating, and features a lower level platform suited for use by paddle craft. There is seating for visitors to enjoy views of the river, Footscray Park and surrounds. The project also includes two new sheltered picnic and barbecue spaces along the river edge in Footscray Park, and improved path connections to the Maribyrnong River Trail.
The project was delivered in partnership with Melbourne Water, with Maribyrnong City Council carrying out the installation works.
