Lakeside Maintenance & Improvement Works Completed

The Eltham Cemetery Trust recently undertook maintenance and improvement works around the Lake.  The works were undertaken by renowned local landscape architect Robert Boyle and the team from Robert Boyle Landscape Design, who also completed the original lake development in 1993. The works were completed in November 2020.

The works undertaken included:

  • Necessary maintenance, including draining & cleaning out the lake, the installation of a new liner and drainage works to capture excess water (underground & overground) for irrigation

  • Creating new pathways and access for families, including a new timber and steel footbridge across the lake together with a timber arbour at the base of the lake providing shelter and shade

  • Positioning of new rockwork to provide families with interment opportunties and memorials around the lake

  • Landscaping and planting complimentary of existing Cemetery grounds

The Eltham Cemetery Trust is a community space, designed to provide a tranquil and serene resting place complementary of the natural settings. All persons are welcome to visit and experience the cemetery, to appreciate local history, open landscaped spaces and artistic installations; the cemetery’s primary purposeas a final resting place should always be respected.

If you have any questions regarding the works, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 03 9432 1963 or contact our office.
