Fawkner Park is one of Melbourne’s most popular parks with over 9,000 people enjoying the park on a daily basis.
To ensure the park’s ongoing health and sustainability, City of Melbourne has endorsed a concept plan for a number of improvements at the entrance to Fawkner Park from Pasley Street North.
The upgrade of the entrance was a recommendation in the Fawkner Park Master Plan 2006.
A concept plan was developed with input from the community during community consultation from November to December 2017, and was endorsed by Council in March 2018.
