The City of Melbourne is committed to developing green space and new play opportunities in North Melbourne, so we can sustainably meet the recreation and environmental needs of our growing population.
The new design has increased the existing park by 47%. The layout will provide additional play spaces, refurbished equipment and seating, as well as another picnic area.
The long term ecological sustainability of the neighbourhood will also be enhanced through:
- planting of 89 new trees
- a diverse mix of native shrubs
- the introduction of water-sensitive garden beds.
Construction began in August 2018, with the park closing to visitors temporarily. The new playground has been open for the public to enjoy since February, with the full 2931 m of the park open since April 2019.
