New pocket park for Flemington

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The corner of Mt Alexander Road and Wellington Street (177a Mt Alexander Road) in Flemington will be transformed into a pocket park with support from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

The small triangular space will become a green oasis among the nearby schools, shops and tram stops. We hope to open Moonee Valley’s newest park in 2022.

You can view draft concept design, design intent information and summary of previous feedback with local young people in the Document Library.

Thank you to everyone who provided thoughts on the Draft Concept Design for the Flemington Pocket Park in November.

We received nearly 150 responses via the Your Say page, email, social media and posted responses. Additional feedback was received from Mt Alexander College students and meetings with Wurundjeri representatives.

In answer to the question – Do you like the draft design?, responses were: 44 Yes, 20 Maybe and 15 No.

We received a wide range of feedback with the most popular comments being about:

  • Support for the park proposal and the green focus of the park
  • Support and/or suggested changes to the design layout
  • Comments and suggestions on park elements, materials and planting

The feedback will help us to finalise the concept design for the new park early in 2021. Once completed, the final concept design will be included on this page together with a summary of the feedback received.

A number of park name suggestions were received by the November 2020 deadline. These will be reviewed as part of Council's naming process and there will be further consultation on park name suggestions in 2021.

CLOSED: This survey has concluded.
