CONTRIBUTE YOUR IDEAS ON THE FUTURE OF ALBERT PARK

Member for Albert Park Martin Foley has today announced that the Albert Park Draft Master Plan is now open for public comment.

The Plan sets a 25-year vision for one of Melbourne’s most-loved parks, which will improve this stunning setting and ensure it continues to be enjoyed by both locals and visitors.

The Park receives more than six million visits a year and this number is set to increase as Melbourne’s population grows.

Located on the perimeter of the CBD, it is one of Melbourne’s premier locations and attracts visitors from across the globe.

The draft master plan has been developed in close consultation with the community and aims to enhance the Park’s services and facilities to provide a natural space that contributes to the health and wellbeing of Melburnians and visitors alike.

The plan aims to improve access for pedestrians and cyclists as well as enhance sporting fields and increase the range of visitor experiences on offer.

The Albert Park Draft Master Plan has been released for public comment until 19 January 2018. This is your opportunity to have your say on the future of the Park and the facilities you would like to see included.
