Open Space Strategy

The City of Maribyrnong has over 150 open spaces, covering more than 307 hectares of land. A notable feature of the open space network is the diversity of spaces, ranging from large historical gardens to the natural values of the waterway corridors along the Maribyrnong River and Stony Creek. In addition there are a number of large, high quality sporting reserves and interspersed through the neighbourhoods are smaller parks and spaces.

The purpose of the Open Space Strategy is to provide a strategic direction for the future planning, provision, design and management of open space in the City of Maribyrnong from 2013 to 2031. The strategy quantifies and describes the existing open space network, including classifying the different types of spaces to assist with the analysis and direction for how it should be managed into the future.
