Fawkner Park is one of Melbourne’s most popular parks with over 9000 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.
Construction on the entrance was finished in August 2022.
