This Culvert Restoration Project is an attractive restoration to a section of parkland along Davies Street in Bealiba. The project was designed to create a more natural ecosystem, remove pests and weeds, and create a healthier flow of water through the area.

The community of Bealiba have done a fantastic job with this project.

A well presented information sign at the site features photos of the work in progress. Another informative sign states the following:

BEALIBA PROGRESS ASSOCIATION
