What are your thoughts on the proposed Bradbury Park improvement project? You still have until 16 December 2019 to provide your feedback. 

A central section of the Bradbury Park, located on Batten and Lawley Streets, Kedron will undergo upgrade works to enhance the look and feel of the park and ensure that it is able to meet the community’s growing demands.

Public consultation on the proposed improvement project is currently ongoing and the public is invited to provide feedback through an online survey on the draft concept plan.

The proposed park improvements, which will begin in 2021, involve:

Tower Ad
  • Existing car park to be closed and replaced with grass
  • Driveway off Batten Street and car park with 40-50 spaces
  • Bus and passenger drop-off zone
  • Grass area with picnic facilities including shelters, seating, and electric barbecues
  • Large playspace built around existing trees, including challenging features to suit children aged 10-15
  • Toilet block
  • Connecting pathways

Beginning in early 2020, Council will also commence with the construction of following  facilities:

  • Nature play features provided under existing grove of shade trees
  • New fitness equipment
  • Looped scooter track  with a range of features for children to navigate

Information that will be gathered during the consultation will be used along with site investigations to help finalise the concept design for the Bradbury Park improvement which is expected to be released mid-2020. Construction commences in 2021.

The Bradbury Park improvement project is part of the Council’s initiative to enhance and maintain the more than 2,100 parks across the city, with more sites identified for future improvements, including Eildon Hill Reservoir, Wembley Park, and Wishart Community Park.
