Fleming Park Master Plan Refresh

Project overview

Fleming Park is one of the few active recreation reserves in the Brunswick East area, and is heavily utilised by the local community for dog walking, play, community meetings and formal sporting activities.

The previous master plan for the park was prepared in 2014, and with the increase in population in the area, and a number of capital works project planned for the next few years, it is timely to check in to make sure the master plan still meets the needs of current and future residents.

Council is consulting with the community ahead of refreshing the Fleming Park Master Plan. At the same time, the playground and toilet at the park are being upgraded.

Proposed Master Plan Refresh consultation

In October and early November 2017 Council held community engagement sessions and activities, including drop-in sessions at the park, online and hardcopy surveys, and public meetings.

The online survey closed on 19 November 2017.

Community Reference Group

Council has established a working group consisting of local residents, general park users and community group/sporting club users of the Park to work as a conduit between Council and the local community to discuss issues and opportunities to form recommendations for presentation to Council.
