PENDER’S PARK MASTER PLAN

Council are supporting a Project Control Group (PCG) made up of local residents to design and develop the Pender’s Park Master Plan. The PCG is chaired by a Rucker Ward Councillor and through consensus the PCG will manage the delivery of the master plan.

Pender's Park Vision & Design Principles

The Pender’s Park Project Control Group (PCG), made up of local community members has been busy working on a vision and design principles that will guide us in how the park is improved.

Before we go any further we want to check in with you to see what you think so far.

How do I get involved?

  • Fill out our survey and tell us what you think of our vision and design principles (ideas)?
  • Come along to a community drop in session at the park on Saturday 21 July. Meet the members of the Pender's Park community committee (PCG) and give us your feedback.

You can also subscribe to receive project updates by clicking STAY INFORMED.

Survey closes Monday 27 August 2018.

Next steps

Once we’ve received all your feedback the PCG will start developing a master plan for endorsement by Darebin Council. You can check this site for updates and we’ll have signs in the park too.

    Pender’s Park Vision

    Pender’s Park is a significant gathering place for our diverse and changing community. As a major neighbourhood park, it’s a place for play, celebrating, active and passive recreation and connecting with nature.

    Pender’s Park Design Principles

    Distinctive Identity

    Pender’s park is a unique space with a character that everyone recognises and values. The park’s identity is shaped by its indigenous history, heritage design and its culturally diverse community.

    Distinctive Identity

    Pender’s park is a unique space with a character that everyone recognises and values. The park’s identity is shaped by its indigenous history, heritage design and its culturally diverse community.

    Accessible, Equitable and Universal

    Pender’s Park is a welcoming and respectful place for everyone to enjoy. The design ensures that anyone can access and use the park and its facilities equitably.

    ‘Playful’

    Pender’s park is a shared space that offers a range of exciting ‘play’ opportunities for adults, children and dogs, while respecting the needs of everyone.

    Connection to Nature

    In a highly urbanised neighbourhood, Pender’s Park is an oasis of green space for people to connect and experience nature.

    Natural and Built Elements

    Shade, shelter, lighting, seating and amenities are well designed, constructed and maintained. These elements encourage the community to meet, socialise and provide everyone with a feeling of safety and an enjoyable outdoor experience.

    Resilience and Sustainability

    The park’s natural and built elements are robust, easy to maintain, and durable for the long-term to support current and future generations.
