Liveable Places and Spaces

Manningham Council is creating a new urban park in Doncaster Hill and is inviting the community to co-design it.

The park, to be known as Hepburn Reserve, was identified as an important community initiative in the Doncaster Hill Strategy 2002 (revised 2004) and will provide additional open space to everyone living, working or visiting the Doncaster Hill area.

The new park will be located on Hepburn Road in Doncaster, between Walker Street and Gifford Street where Council have acquired several properties to make way for the new space.
The community is invited to share their ideas for the new park and can do so by completing an online survey or by attending a community park design event on Saturday 16 November 2019.

The community park design event will include free entertainment for the whole family such as coffee, face painting, a lemonade cart, drawing activities and games for the kids.

Manningham Mayor, Cr Paul McLeish, said he is very excited about the creation of a new park in Doncaster Hill and is looking forward to seeing the enduring benefits of this project in the community. “Open space is so valuable in our community, and for residents living nearby the addition of a new park in Doncaster Hill will be welcome news.

To make this park great we’re asking residents to give us their big ideas on playspaces, trees, vegetation and more. This is the communities chance to tell us what they’d love to see in their new local park.”
