Help shape our new Play and Gathering Places Strategy

Connections provide us with a sense of belonging and purpose. Play and gathering together in our natural environment can foster those connections and create a thriving community. That’s why Council is calling on our community to tell us where, why and how you play and gather.

Your feedback will help inform Council’s new Play and Gathering Places Strategy, with the vision to provide inclusive places within our open spaces that aim to cater for all cohorts within our community.

These places will promote gathering, interaction, connection, wellbeing and liveability while being thoughtfully and sustainably planned to honour Maroondah’s natural environment and culture. 

Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Rob Steane, said the strategy will impact residents throughout Maroondah.

“Whether it’s a play in a park, a walk with a friend, a family picnic, a workout or an adventure in our bushland, we want to know what you enjoy and what you think could improve your experiences in open spaces in Maroondah,” Cr Steane said.

“This important strategy will impact everyone in Maroondah, so I encourage you to share your thoughts.”

To share your feedback, visit Council’s Your Say Maroondah website, where you can complete our five-minute survey and drop a pin on our interactive map to share your experiences with playing and gathering in Maroondah.

You can also share your thoughts at one of our onsite consultations at our upcoming Celebrate Maroondah events

Residents who share their thoughts by Sunday 12 March will go into the draw to win one of ten $50 Eastland gift vouchers. Terms and conditions apply, so visit Council’s Your Say Maroondah website for details.
