Enhancing Edinburgh Gardens: Northern Precinct and Playground

Update

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our recent conversations around enhancing Edinburgh Gardens.

Community feedback helped us make a range of improvements to our draft plans.

You can view a summary of the feedback or a more detailed report.

Council Resolutions – 19 December 2017

After considering all community feedback, Council endorsed the Draft Northern Precinct Plan (a high-level plan to guide future works in the northern area of the park). View the Endorsed Northern Precinct Plan.

At the same meeting Council endorsed ‘in principle’ the Draft Playground Concept Plan (a more detailed plan for an improved playground within the northern area of the park) and called for further detailed design work and feedback from previous submitters.

View the Council resolution.

Another chance to have your say

We have since made a number of refinements to our Draft Playground Concept Plan and published it on our project page. View the new Draft Playground Concept Plan here.

We now invite previous submitters to view and comment on the revised plan before Wednesday 14 February.

Please send your comments to info@yarracity.vic.gov.au (subject line: Enhancing Edinburgh Gardens) or contact the Open Space Planning and Design team on 9205 5555.

Council will consider your additional feedback before making a final decision.



Original text

Help us shape North Fitzroy’s largest community space.

After consulting with park users in 2016, we have developed two draft plans.

  • The Draft Northern Precinct Plan is a high-level plan to guide future works in the northern area of the park.
  • The Draft Playground Concept Plan is a more detailed plan for an improved playground within the northern area of the park.

We are now seeking your feedback on the draft plans, which can be viewed here. Your contributions will help ensure that Edinburgh Gardens remains a great place to meet, play and relax.

Draft Northern Precinct Plan

This is a high-level plan to guide future works in the northern area of the park. Key features of the Draft Northern Precinct Plan include:

  • The playground has been moved further south and integrated into the natural setting of the park, clear of the tree protection zones of the existing trees.
  • The BBQ area has been relocated to the north of the playground and will provide more tables and incorporate game elements such as chess.
  • An activity precinct which will include the relocated table tennis table, a new basketball half-court and expanded skate/BMX facility has been nominated.
  • Redundant fencing (no longer required following the removal of the carpark and demolition of International House) will be removed.
  • Increased open space for passive recreation opportunities.
  • More tree planting.

All proposals are subject to future budget and planning processes, with the exception of playground improvements which are funded in the 2017/18 capital works budget.

Draft Playground Concept Plan

The Draft Playground Concept Plan is a detailed plan for an upgraded playground within the northern precinct. Key features of the Draft Playground Concept Plan include:

  • New location away from Alfred Crescent and clear of existing mature trees.
  • More integration with natural play elements.
  • New equipment with more play opportunities.
  • Retained focus on equipment for younger age groups (to complement the play opportunities offered in the southern playground).
  • New picnic and BBQ area.

The proposed works are funded in the 2017/18 capital works budget.
