Monument Park is a sculpture park located on NewQuay Promenade. The park is an example of a collaborative project between MAB Corporation, artist Callum Morton, McBride Charles Ryan Architects, Oculus Landscape Architects, City of Melbourne and Places Victoria.
Callum Morton’s inspiration was the use of existing monuments scattered in the Melbourne CBD along with the Hoddle grid. Those are then covered with a ‘concrete carpet’, the carpet is then peeled back to reveal bursts of colour and landscaping. Can you recognise these famous Melbourne monuments that have taken a new form?
Enjoy a coffee, macaroon or ice cream from one of the many nearby cafes overlooking the city and harbour. Art lovers should continue to stroll the length of NewQuay Promenade for other popular artworks including ‘Silence’ and ‘Meeting 1’
