Let's see history up close at Rathmines Park.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this consultation. The project team are currently reviewing all feedback received and will report back soon.

Over the last 12 months you have helped us prepare a draft Plan of Management and Master Plan for Rathmines Park to guide its future use and development.

The draft Plan of Management outlines the management directions for the park which are interpreted spatially through the draft Master Plan.

Together with the Rathmines Park Conservation Management Plan, the draft Plan of Management creates a platform for the continued celebration of Rathmines Park’s unique history, as well as delivering modern facilities and enabling activities that can meet long-term community needs.

The draft plans build upon the values and vision you have identified for the park and include proposals for a youth hub incorporating a new skate park and pump/BMX track, upgraded children’s play area and outdoor gym equipment.

Now is the time to review both draft documents and provide any further feedback you may have by completing the survey or by uploading a written submission.

Public Hearing

The Rathmines Park Plan of Management proposes to change some existing land categories within the park.

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1993, Council is required to host an independently-chaired public hearing to seek community feedback on the re-categorisation. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions this will be conducted online. Please note: the public hearing is specifically to provide feedback on the re-categorisation of land.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Consultation with the community on Rathmines Park during September and October 2019 identified a large number of ideas, features and suggested improvements.

    Concept Master Plans have been developed to highlight key directions and ideas for the Park.

    An Issues and Opportunities Paper has also been produced to support the Concept Master Plans and clearly articulate the potential directions and ideas for the Park.  The Paper summarises the key community values of the Park and an initial vision and principles for future use.  Potential future opportunities and directions are identified under five key themes which provide overarching direction to the area as a whole.

    A series of Analysis Plans have also been produced which explore the current conditions and use of the Park and to highlight the potential opportunities.

    These Concept Plans are not final and are still to be tested through consultation, design refinement and in response to further site investigations as required.

    Whilst a number of proposed projects and opportunities have been identified, Council has many and competing needs for funding allocations. There are existing funding streams available for a small proportion of projects, albeit the full cost of these will only be known once detailed design is undertaken and some projects may need to be staged as a consequence.

    As such, part of the road-testing process is to seek feedback on priorities for funding which will then inform the priorities identified in the Plan of Management and Council’s subsequent funding commitments.

    This survey focusses on those areas where clarification and prioritisation are needed - refer Concept Master Plans for further details.

    This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
