Public Open Space Strategy

In December 2019 the Town adopted it's first ever Public Open Space Strategy. Public Open Space (POS) provides significant benefit to the community including provision of amenity to support active sporting pursuits, recreational pastimes and spaces for community interaction with their environment and engagement with each other. POS also provides opportunity to protect and improve natural systems within the Town of Victoria Park. Well-designed POS can support beneficial community health outcomes including increased physical activity, mental well-being and social cohesiveness.

This Public Open Space Strategy is intended to provide direction to the Town on equitable provision, access, type and quality of POS to ensure the myriad of benefits are available to the entire community. POS is defined in this strategy as land set aside for the purpose of public enjoyment and protection of unique, environmental, social and cultural values for existing and future generations.
