Yarra is home to great parks, reserves, urban spaces and waterways that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. In fact, about a quarter of our city is open space, including areas of significant biodiversity and bushland.

With a growing population and increasing density, it's important that quality open space is within a safe and easy walk.

We've prepared a draft Open Space Strategy to guide how we manage Yarra's open spaces over the next 15 years. The strategy also identifies 26 potential new open spaces to help meet the needs of our growing and diverse community.
