The Boyd Park Draft Concept Plan outlines our vision for creating a new neighbourhood park for Southbank, adjacent to the Boyd Community Hub.
The plan aims to create a backyard for the thousands of residents living in apartments in Southbank and provides flexible and playful spaces that support a range of activities for the diverse population.
The draft plan builds on Boyd’s former use as a school and its current function as a vibrant community hub in Melbourne’s densest suburb.
Underpinned by the Open Space Strategy, the concept plan has been substantially informed by phase one community engagement undertaken in 2014 and includes the following:
Boyd Park is one of a suite of projects in Southbank, which aim to meet the needs of the growing population by improving access to open space and making it safer and easier to get around this inner city neighbourhood. Other related projects in the area include the transformation of Southbank Boulevard to create new open space, a new bicycle connection along Kavanagh Street and street upgrades proposed under the City Road Master Plan.
