Open Space Strategy 2009

The City of Greater Dandenong Open Space Strategy 2009 maps out how, over the next 20 years, we will achieve a quality public park and reserve network to meet the recreational and social needs of the existing and future Greater Dandenong community.

The goal of the strategy is to:

  • provide a range of public parks and reserves within walking distance from most residents that are attractive, interesting, safe, readily accessible and comfortable places to be
  • provide a comprehensive open space network that delivers environmental, social, health and well-being, and economic benefits to the community

The strategy outlines a three tiered hierarchy of district, neighbourhood and local reserves and establishes Open Space Provision Goals and Park Development Standards. Together these guide the planning, design, management, and ongoing maintenance of open space.
