Thank you for your feedback. You can find out more about the decision process and the final Open Space Strategy by heading to our more recent Your Say Yarra consultation page.

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 heard your feedback

Nearly 2000 local voices contributed to the conversation on how we plan for and manage our public open spaces over the next 10 to 15 years. We held pop up listening posts, activities for children and promoted the conversation online, with our advisory committees, neighbourhood houses and community groups.

We asked you which parks and facilities you love and why, 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.

Update on draft open space strategy

We've since analysed all of that feedback along with other costing and planning data and started drafting the new strategy.

The draft strategy will be out on exhibition for your feedback mid 2019.
