College’s Tolosa connection

The Tolosa Park transformation from a decommissioned dam into a usable parkland has sparked interest from the neighbouring Dominic College.

The old dam wall is currently being removed and sculpted into a recreational area for locals to enjoy, with the $6m project set for completion in the middle of 2024.

TasWater representatives recently met with the team from Dominic College, Liminal Architects and Aboriginal- owned enterprise Black Wattle Country to discuss the current works on the Tolosa Dam and how the school can incorporate the changes into its upcoming projects.

Black Wattle Country has been collaborating with Liminal Studio and Dominic College to draw connections between landscapes, animal pathways and waterways to enrich the school curriculum.

“We met with Dominic College and their project team as they were keen to understand the project to transform the Tolosa Dam and learn more about the waterways that run into the rivulet which flows through the school grounds,” TasWater Capital Engagement Specialist Melissa Woolley said.

“The information discussed will be used to help inform educational opportunities for students, guide the design of outdoor learning spaces and work towards the rejuvenation of the waterway within the school as part of future improvements.”

The Tolosa Park Dam Redevelopment is a TasWater project in partnership with Glenorchy City Council and is the first step towards completion of the full vision outlined in the Glenorchy City Council’s Master Plan.
