Access to public open space is more important than ever. Merri-bek City Council is working hard to preserve and enhance existing open space, while also creating new parks in areas that need it.

In 2017, Merri-bek City Council endorsed the ambitious Park Close to Home framework, a strategic plan to fill open space gaps by creating new parks across Merri-bek.

This framework has seen the acquisition of land to create new parks in 6 locations across Merri-bek, one being at 14 Frith Street Brunswick.

July Update

The new park at 14 Frith Street in Brunswick is on track for delivery in 2023. Following an initial site clean-up and hazardous material removal that commenced in June 2022, preliminary construction works will start from August 2022 onwards. See latest News Update on new park site works for more details.

We've also refreshed the park concept plan to include all of the changes detailed in the last update, which you can view from this page or the Document Library.

We will share other information about the new park as we progress through the next stage of the project. Please keep an eye out on this web page for further updates.
