The Boyd Park Concept Plan outlines our vision for creating a new neighbourhood park for Southbank, adjacent to the Boyd Community Hub.
Endorsed by the Future Melbourne Committee in March 2018, the plan will create a backyard for the thousands of residents living in apartments in Southbank. It will also provide flexible and playful spaces that support a range of activities for the diverse population. The plan builds on Boyd’s former use as a school and its current function as a vibrant community hub in one of Melbourne’s most densely populated suburbs.
Underpinned by the City of Melbourne’s Open Space Strategy (2012), the plan has been informed by two rounds of extensive community engagement undertaken in 2014 and 2017.
