Sunvale Community Park's New Look! Have Your Say

Summary

An edible garden, more trees, dedicated play areas for kids, skate spaces, a basketball half-court and cricket pitch are some of the elements proposed in the Draft Sunvale Community Park Master Plan.

You're invited to view the Draft Sunvale Community Park Master Plan, now on public exhibition, and submit any feedback in writing by 19 May 2016.

Chair of Brimbank Administrators, Mr John Watson said Council was pleased with the community input received to inform the development of the draft Sunvale Community Park Master Plan. “The Sunshine community is very passionate about the future development of the Sunvale Community Park," Mr Watson said.


Consultation Created Great Ideas
We've worked hard to incorporate many of the ideas raised at the two consultation events held on site during 2014 and 2015 into the draft plan.

The draft Master Plan proposes dedicated play spaces for kids of varying ages, including water play for younger kids and multi-purpose skate areas for teens.

It also proposes to keep the existing trees, plant large new shade trees, including Morton Bay Figs, and to plant an edible garden for use by all the community.


Other Features

  • A large green ‘kick a ball’ space for active play, passive recreation and outdoor cinema use.
  • A diagonal central pedestrian spine with solar lighting, aiding access through the park.
  • An indigenously-themed circuit path network featuring exercise stations integrated along the path, providing frontage and access to the adjacent residential development.
  • A picnic shelter with barbecue facilities.
  • Additional on-street parking to the east side of Neil Street, including one-way south bound traffic on Neil Street, to address safety concerns.
  • A kiosk referencing the school history of the site and including toilet facilities, and Water Sensitive Urban Design elements are included but are subject to future negotiations and external funding.

Written submissions should be addressed to the Urban Design Department and close on Thursday 19 May 2016.
