Future Mayer Park

Your Park, Your Way

Council has committed to creating a master plan for Mayer Park and need the community’s help to design it!


Background

Significant community support and advocacy by local residents and users of the park combined with Council’s commitment to the Council Plan Darebin 2021 Goal 1.3 has resulted in Council endorsing an innovative community-led design approach to create a master plan for Mayer Park in Thornbury.


What is Council doing?

We have formed a Project Control Group made up of local community members to help design and develop the Mayer Park Masterplan. The group have named themselves the Mayer Park Community Group (MPCG) and is chaired by a Darebin Rucker Ward Councillor. The MPCG has been tasked with formulating the community engagement process to gather community feedback, as well as develop the masterplan.


Share your ideas!

The Mayer Park Community Group want your ideas and feedback on the vision for Mayer Park to help formulate how it can be improved now and into the future!

Come and meet us at the Makers Market at Leinster Grove Community Centre on 13 October 2018 between 10am-2pm and share your ideas with us.
