District Park Masterplans

What is a regional park?

Regional parks are large public reserves that provide multiple recreation opportunities and attract out-of-area visitors. They are associated with unique attractions, eg. a showground, visitors centre, aquatic centre.

Regional parks are able to accommodate large numbers of visitors and have the potential to cater for visitors to annual special events and festivals.

What is a district park?

District Parks have features that attract people from outside the immediate neighbourhood which include unique landscape character or large areas of open space for recreation.

What is a landscape masterplan?

Landscape Masterplans are used to guide improvements and increased use while acknowledging the existing natural and cultural heritage of the site for the future.The master planning process encourages community consultation from the design concept stage through to the production of the completed plan which is then adopted by Council to implement as funding becomes available. The Masterplan identifies priorities for improvements over a 10-15 year period.

Masterplans aim to:

  • integrate sustainable principles into park design;
  • incorporate elements that are important to the community and user groups;
  • balance the concerns of all community groups;
  • establish priorities for future improvements over the next 5 - 10 years;
  • provide a holistic approach to design that allows for improvements to occur in stages as funding becomes available.
