The City of Melbourne is developing a Master Plan to guide the future development, management and use of Birrarung Marr over the next 20 years.

Birrarung Marr is an important capital city open space on the northern banks of the Yarra River. In 2002 it was the first major open space to be built in Melbourne in a century. It’s a well-designed urban contemporary landscape that was created as a place for people and to celebrate public activities.

A draft of the Master Plan is expected to be shared for community consultation next year.
