We love our local parks in Yarra

They are the lungs of our city, providing beautiful spaces for people of all ages and their furry friends to relax, play, walk, ride and just be. They also support an abundance of trees, plants, animals and waterways that are essential to our local environment and bio-diversity.

We're planning for the future by drafting our new Open Space Strategy. The strategy will guide how we manage our public open spaces over the next 10 to 15 years. It will also help identify how and where we can create new open spaces to meet the needs of our growing community.

We want to hear from you

We want to know which parks and facilities you love and why. Telling us how you use our open spaces now, how you would like to use them in the future, where you think the gaps are and where you think improvements could be made, will help us draft a strategy that works for everybody.

Take our short survey to provide direct input to the drafting of the strategy.
