Cardinia Council has recently restored the historic Wishing Well at Emerald Lake Park and it’s now open for the community to enjoy.
Around 80 years old, the well previously held water from the naturally fed spring 25 meters upstream.
The recent face-lift included enhancing the bluestone wishing well with a recessed circular steel well cover for improved safety, a typical old-fashioned wishing well roof and bucket winder, hardwood hand railing, retaining walls and a solid timber bench to rest and take in the tranquil surroundings.
The Wishing was closed for several months during the time of the renovation.
