BE PART OF SHAPING THE PARK’S FUTURE

The second stage of developing a new master plan for Albert Park completed on 5th December 2016. Parks Victoria held a series of workshops and community forums to reach the broad community of park visitors – sports players, local residents and occasional visitors.

Next they will develop a DRAFT MASTER PLAN which is expected to be available for comment by April 2017.  For more details visit their website at www.albertparkmasterplan.com.au

It has been 20 years since any comprehensive planning occurred for Albert Park as a whole and Melbourne has changed markedly in that time.  A master plan is needed to set a 20 year vision for the park and guide it through the next stage of its history. The goals of the project are to create a park that is:

  • Inspiring and exciting, as well as peaceful and relaxing;
  • Treasured by the local communities and the community of Melbourne;
  • Relevant to a growing and changing population;
  • Generating revenue for the improvement of the park;
  • Working towards sustainability in terms of natural resource use, and
  • Able to respond to increasing and changing community pressures

If you want to see any improvements/changes to the south east section of the park (closest to St Kilda Junction precinct) or the park generally, we encourage you to participate in Parks Victoria’s survey as this will help Parks Victoria to develop an understanding of what people value about the park.
