Share your memories to inform artwork design

Through an EOI process and in line with Cardinia Shire Council's Public Art Policy, we have recently commissioned an artist, Carla Gottgens, to create a public artwork at PB Ronald Reserve.

This artwork will attach to the existing outdoor pool fence that runs parallel to John Street, Pakenham to beautify the vicinity.

Carla wants to hear what locals of all ages recall of their memories through the decades associated with public swimming pools. These memories will help inform the themes of the final artwork.

Carla will be at Pakenham Outdoor Pool on 27 January, 2023 from 12-2 pm asking pool-goers for their memories.

There will be a suggestion box available at the Pakenham Outdoor Pool for input until Friday 17 February.
