The ngurrak barring | Ridgewalk project aims to connect the villages of the Dandenong’s through five themed walks covering 39 kms. The themes of Community, Country, Ways of seeing, Activism and Resilience will be celebrated through cultural histories and creative stories specific to each region along the way. Architectural nodes are resting spaces that are important aspects of these themes.

Five key sites within the Dandenong Ranges have been identified for architectural nodes, which will include design features and interpretive information. They will provide a place to pause and reflect on the surrounding environment.

One of the architectural nodes will be in the Sassafras Village Green. Council, together with the designers, are starting the design phase for this architectural node, celebrating the theme of ‘Community’, and we would like your input.
