'Triangular Dimensions' is a celebration of the past, present, and future lives of Parkville. From its First Nations heritage and an ongoing connection to Country, native flora and fauna, and the establishment of its early institutions and residential housing. To its artistic and cultural soul, military history, biomedical discoveries, sporting life, and the development of the new Parkville Station, due to open in 2025.

'Triangular Dimensions' is a collaboration between the Metro Tunnel Creative Program and the Parkville Association.
