Future of Open Space

We want to hear about what you use public open space in Greater Dandenong for, how often you use it and how you access it.

Council is preparing a new Open Space Strategy and is seeking community feedback on open space across our city, including sporting fields, nature reserves, gardens, playgrounds, trails and civic spaces such as Harmony Square in Dandenong.

Your feedback will help to improve the quality of all open spaces and ensure there are the right types of open space for everyone to enjoy.

Background

The City of Greater Dandenong’s Council Plan 2017-2021 seeks to ensure the City "is a safe and vibrant city of opportunity for all - to visit, work, live and play".

To achieve this, Council is currently reviewing the 2009 Open Space Strategy and Action Plan to make sure open space in Greater Dandenong meets the needs of existing and future residents.

As part of this review, an Analysis & Discussion Paper has been prepared to assess the amount and location of existing open space, the impact of population growth and a range of other factors.
