Open Space Strategy
Greater Dandenong Open Space Strategy 2020 - 2030
The Greater Dandenong Open Space Strategy 2020-30 provides a framework for Council to manage and improve the quality, design and provision of open space over the next 10 years to ensure the needs of existing residents and future generations are met.
The Strategy recognises and responds to a range of key issues including populationg growth, cultural diversity, climate change and increasing residential densities.
Council is committed to providing a high-quality, accessible and sustainable open space netwrok for the enjoyment of the Greater Dandenong community through two main methods:
Open space including sporting fields, nature reserves, gardens, playgrounds, trails and civic spaces such as Harmony Square in Dandenong.

The population of Greater Dandenong is projected to grow almost 20% by the year 2029, with the demand for open space anticipated to increase in line with this growth. Council's role is to plan and respond to the impacts of population growth and climate change on our city, and to ensure open space continues to provide a range of benefits for all residents and the environment.
In 2019, Council released an Open Space Analysis and Discussion Paper and sought community input on the importance of open space to inform the review of the 2009 Open Space Strategy and Action Plan. Further feedback was sought on the draft Greater Dandenong Open Space Strategy in 2020, with the final Strategy being adopted by Council on 24 August 2020.
