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.

  • View the design options and tell us what you think!

    23 days ago

    We’re excited to share three draft visions for what the Flemington Community @ Debneys Park could look like in the short, medium and long term.

    These visions are shown as ‘concept designs’. They are designs that allow us to see what the possibilities are, including what can fit, where. They are not final. We are exploring three options to explore different possibilities.

    We are keen to know what you think about the concept designs.

    Your feedback will help us to decide on a preferred concept option that we can develop further and present back to you later in 2019.

    The concept design options have been guided by what you have told us previously, our research and our understanding of what is needed in the Flemington neighbourhood and surrounds.

    To view the concept designs go to the Document Library in the right hand column. For more information on the concept designs, refer to Project Information in the right hand column.

    Tell us what you about our concept designs and comment in our guestbook, or fill out our Feedback Form at the 'Surveys & Forms' tab.

  • Designing Flemington Community @ Debneys Park with community input

    2 months ago

    Work is progressing on the concept designs for our new community space. These will soon be available for you to view, and provide feedback on.

    Input from residents, community groups and organisations, as well as members of the Flemington Neighbourhood Advisory Group and staff of the Flemington Community Centre, continues to guide the designs. Most recently, we gained feedback on the vision for the project, and design inspiration for different types of facilities including building height and size.

    This consultation reinforced Debneys Park as a place for the whole community. We heard that the designs should be welcoming of all,...

Most recently, we gained feedback on the vision for the project, and design inspiration for different types of facilities including building height and size.

    This consultation reinforced Debneys Park as a place for the whole community. We heard that the designs should be welcoming of all, cater to many interests of local residents, and encourage people to use the park, get to know their neighbours and spend time with their families.

    Creating a beautiful, safe and natural hub that includes a range of facilities which are fun, and well connected to each other and to the surrounding areas, is important.

    Buildings can be significant but should be beautiful and respectful of the surrounding parkland.

    For further information on the consultation held in October and November 2018 please refer to the document library in the right column.

  • A vision for our plan

    3 months ago

    The new vision for Flemington Community @ Debneys Park is:

    “Debneys Park welcomes, nurtures and nourishes everyone.”

    This key statement is based on feedback from stakeholders and reflects the elements of community, connection and celebration that we've learned are important.

    The vision will guide our decisions and priorities for the precinct including its design, use and management.

    Future consultation

    Council is strongly committed to the delivery of this project. Work has begun on concept designs and there is $150,000 in the 2018/19 Budget for preliminary design and investigation works.

    We have already conducted a series of consultations to help inform the Debneys Park Precinct Plan and Flemington community hub design. You have told us what you most like about Debneys Park, how you use it, and what you would like to see improved.

    We've planned further consultations with the community, taking place in late 2018 / early 2019.
