In 2019 we worked closely with the local community to implement the 2018 Master Plan Refresh for the redevelopment of Fleming Park, and improvements are underway!
Fleming Park is a popular recreation reserve in the Brunswick East area. It is heavily used by locals for dog walking, children's play, community meetings and formal sporting activities.
The redevelopment of the park includes:
- Re-purposing the Grandstand to include seating and overall beautification.
- Upgrades to the existing Community Hall and Bocce Club building.
- A new multipurpose female friendly sports pavilion that complies with various sports and disability access requirements.
- New public amenities including family friendly facilities.
- A new multi-court and reinstated car park.
- Improvements to the bike path and children's play area.
- Landscape improvements throughout the park.
The Grandstand design has now been finalised based on feedback from public consultation held in 2019 and expert heritage advice.
The re-imagined Grandstand respects the history of Fleming Park while providing a contemporary facility for future generations to enjoy. The refurbishment works of the grandstand are expected to commence in May 2020 for delivery this year.
Project update - July 2020
- Main works design is progressing well with Town Planning application expected to be submitted in August 2020.
- Grandstand works will commence in end of July and are expected to be completed over next 3 to 4 months.
- Site establishment was completed with the demolition to begin week starting on 27 July. The oval footpath adjacent to the Grandstand will be closed for public safety during construction hours. Park users are advised to check the construction signage on site regarding the hours whilst using the park.
- There will be minor interruption to park users from Grandstand construction with the statutory safe work zone requirement, however the park is still available for general public to enjoy.
- Appropriate signage and traffic management will be in place to ensure a safe and secure construction process
