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 Master Plan. 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 master plan.


Draft Master Plan coming soon!

Over the past 12 months, the Mayer Park Community Group have worked in collaboration with Council to develop the Draft Mayer Park Master Plan.

We are excited to announce that the Draft Master Plan will be released for community feedback in March 2020.
