Peppercorn Park, located in West Richmond, is a small community open space that was opened in October 2009 as part of Council's commitment to creating five new parks by 2013.
The park, originally owned by the Richmond Uniting Church, became available following Council's decision to enter into a 10-year lease with the church for the land.
Council has made significant improvements to the park, including introducing new seating made from recycled railway sleepers, resurfacing the pathway and planting drought tolerant grasses and shrubs.
Six new trees have also been planted, including a peppercorn tree at the park's entrance.
Also part of the park's improvements is the connection of the facility's rainwater tank to the church's tank, which can collect up to 11,000 litres of water.
The water collected will be used to naturally irrigate the park to maintain its grass and garden beds.
