Beckett Park Sign

  • The City of Boroondara Parks and Gardens Department has been thrilled with the expertise and craftsmanship of Danthonia Designs. Our new signs are stylish and unique and depict at a glance the character of each site for our visitors. Our aim in developing the new signs was to create a style of sign for each of our park types - heritage, environmental, general and sporting. We believe that the new signs installed to date are achieving this successfully and we look forward to developing and installing more in the near future.
