The Brunswick Central Parklands Plan aims to provide strategic future direction for the open space and a framework for new works and future upgrades. The 19 hectare parklands includes Gillon Oval, Brunswick Park, Clifton Park, Reaburn Reserve and Gilpin Park (see Map below).

Integrated water management (IWM) is to be an important part of this plan to ensure we can sustainably respond to future demands from the community and climate change.

Community feedback on the draft plan is now open!

We are now in our 3rd stage of community consultation and would like to hear what you think of the draft plan to improve the Brunswick Central Parklands.

You can leave tell us your thoughts on the plan using the tool below or you can meet us at one of our pop up sessions in the park.

Improvement works at Gilpin Park are continuing with the renewal of the play ground and additional social picnic facilities and a public toilet. The Gilpin Park improvements page has more information about these works, inlcuding a concept plan.

What isn't included in the plan?

  • This Plan does not provide any guidelines or recommendations on building heights and setbacks on privately owned land. These are included in existing Planning Scheme controls and Overlays.
  • The Plan does not provide detailed designs for each of its proposed projects. If Council was to proceed with a project in the plan, detailed design and community engagement would be required.
  • Following engagement on the proposed ideas, all feedback received will be closely reviewed and incorporated into the final plan, to be considered by Council for adoption in early 2022. Following on from the draft, a detailed design stage will require further site analysis to assist with preparing a construction-ready design.
  • Construction is also dependent on the availability of funding and prioritisation of the projects.
  • Some of the plan projects can be progressed sooner than others due to funding and stages of project development. In the meantime, the plan will also be used to inform Council’s other current projects, such as the Open Space Strategy and ongoing advocacy with key stakeholders.
