Be part of the Flemington Community @ Debneys Park

Debneys Park provides vital facilities, services and open space to the Flemington community, including:

  • Flemington Community Centre
  • Debneys Park sports pavilion
  • Sports fields and courts
  • Picnic facilities and play equipment.

Debneys Park is much-loved by locals. Located in one of the fastest-growing and most diverse suburbs of Moonee Valley, a plan to develop a new community centre and improve the park is needed to meet Flemington's future demands and to upgrade old buildings.

The plan will include elements to be delivered over the short, medium and longer term.

Short term:

  • A community hub that provides space for more services and activities needed by the community, including a community hall, multipurpose meeting rooms, co-working spaces, a community kitchen and large foyer.

Medium-longer term:

  • Open space and improved landscaping
  • Protection of significant trees
  • Accessible facilities
  • Better connection to areas surrounding the park, including the Moonee Ponds Creek
  • Easier access, with improved links to train stations and tram stops.

We've consulted with the community and based on your feedback, we're excited to share with you three draft visions for what the Flemington Community @ Debneys Park could look like, both in the short, and the medium to longer term.

Looks set to become another generic sports club, like the outer burbs for a few sports people couple of hours a week they use it. No character. More trees and nature for everyone in Flemington. Melbourne Council’s new plan has a water park here, we want that.

Can you make it happen??

We need space for our kids to enjoy the outdoors and nature.Getting more built up its our respite so close to the city.

I'd love to leave feedback but the survey link doesn't work

I would really appreciate MVCC making a model to scale of the current site with overlays of the proposed options and taking these around to consultation sessions and meetings.This is our one chance to get it right. Low grade ply would be fine.

I just spent half an hour trying to fill in the survey, providing feedback, but it wouldn't let me submit unless I chose one of the 3 options. All three make me very sad. Each of them propose constructing buildings on the best part of our park, where people currently meet and socialise. It is the quietest, greenest spot, with the best light. The plans propose pushing people over to the roads, to allow a built form that will not only mean the loss of trees and useable open space but create a bulky barrier between the Estate, the Park and surrounds. This makes no sense. Nor do the proposed roads through Debney's Park. Where are people supposed to park their cars or access these buildings via public transport? Please don't sacrifice our best open space for these plans. Please come up with some other options, and please don't pretend this is consultation if we can only provide feedback on what is effectively one option.
