This project houses historic wooden horse-drawn Bennett Wagons fabricated locally in the St.Marys Area some 100 years ago. The site location is in South Creek Park in St. Marys, a short distance from the original factory site where the wagons were built. The new pavilion structures work in tandem with an existing rudimentary pole frame structure housing an original wagon on the site. The trio of wagons are an iconic landmark in this park, which is at significant junction on Great Western Highway approaching St. Marys.
The pavilions incorporate a significant component of materials, which would have gone to landfill and are a demonstration project for the re-use and recycling of diverted waste materials the primary example being the main structural posts which are reclaimed telegraph poles.
