The "Down's Estate" is the former farm on Old Wells Rd in Seaford (see map below), previously owned by world-renowned whip and saddle-maker Harry Down. The land is now owned by Frankston City Council and jointly managed.

The Project is comprised of a hardworking group, eager and dedicated to create a community-based public space at the site which will comprise many facets, including a community garden.
