How can we make Melbourne more active? We want our recreation facilities and services to support all residents and visitors to the municipality.
The City of Melbourne has:
- more than 60 parks, gardens and boulevards
- a public golf course
- 2 skate parks
- 4 aquatic and recreation centres
- 40 sporting fields (used by 80 sporting clubs)
- 13 pavilions
- 7 tennis clubs
- 10 water-activity clubs
- 3 lawn bowls clubs
- a range of recreational programs, facilities and activities.
We want to improve and build on the existing formal and informal recreation opportunities, while considering predicted population growth and the resultant impact this has on demand. We want to find out how we can enable as many of the municipality’s residents and visitors as possible to engage in formal and informal physical activity – those of all ages, genders, cultural backgrounds and levels of ability.
In 2016 we consulted with the community on the Active Melbourne Strategy. This project is on hold until further notice.
