Background

In 2015 we commissioned a study for a Master Plan to guide the future development of Petrie Park and Rattray Reserve, Montmorency (our funding agreement is for delivering actions for Petrie Park only).

We undertook extensive consultation with Petrie Park user groups, the community and Council officers. Household surveys, stakeholder interviews, reference group workshops with external stakeholders and three community drop-in events were conducted to ensure the Master Plan reflected the community’s needs.

The Master Plan responds to community feedback, considers site challenges and identifies opportunities to improve the park.

This project will focus on delivering a number of actions relating to playground, pathways, access, vegetation, fencing and infrastructure, as outlined in the Master Plan. No actions relating to the existing buildings will be delivered as part of this project.

Petrie Park Master Plan

It's time to implement the Petrie Park Master Plan that was developed with community in 2016.

We have negotiated for the Victorian Government to fund the works as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) and will be delivering a number of actions from the Master Plan to improve the park.

Scope of works include:

  • upgrading the path network
  • a new intergenerational playground
  • more greenery and tree plantings.

Works are scheduled to start in early 2023.

Keep an eye out for signs at Petrie Park and community information sessions on how the area will be transformed.
