Manjimup Timber and Heritage Park is now home to a land-based community artwork.

Directing artist Elaine Clocherty was joined on Sunday afternoon by the Warren Catchments Council and community members and supporters to officially open the work.

Phyllis Karahoutis welcomed all to country and planted the first tree in the living artwork and South West MLC Diane Evers gave an opening address.

The artwork is located just west of the community garden in the corner of the park and is now officially complete and open for visitors to admire.
