Lower Plenty, Viewbank and Yallambie
Traditional youth spaces like playgrounds, sandpits and skate parks are important, but we need to think, plan and design differently if we want to make sure young people experience the full benefits of play and activity.
Since the Youth Spaces Plan was developed in 2021, we have done more work identify the best locations for outdoor youth spaces across Banyule. As part of this work we have considered outdoor spaces for preteens and early teens (12 to 14 years), teens and young adults (15 to 25 years), and district spaces for all young people.
Thank you for your feedback on the proposed locations for youth spaces in Banyule Feedback is now closed.

The Banyule Youth Spaces Plan was adopted by Council on 30 August 2021.
The Plan will guide Council to provide outdoor recreation places and spaces for young people aged 12 – 25 years across Banyule. It will make sure these places and spaces are youth-friendly, that they enable young people to feel included and that they are holistic, innovative and meaningful for young people across Banyule.
The Plan also supports an assessment of community need and demand for additional youth recreation spaces and facilities. Key actions included in the plan are:
The Youth Spaces Plan was prepared in alignment with the Banyule Youth Services Action Plan 2019.
To develop the Youth Spaces Plan, we actively engaged 348 community members through surveys, workshops/events and group discussions with:
Our community is made up of diverse cultures, beliefs, abilities, bodies, sexualities, ages and genders. We are committed to access, equity, participation and rights for everyone: principles which empower, foster harmony and increase the wellbeing of an inclusive community.
Banyule City Council is proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people as traditional custodians of the land and we pay respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, past, present and emerging, who have resided in the area and have been an integral part of the region’s history.
