Marie Wallace Park Masterplan

Marie Wallace Bayswater Park is located in Bayswater with Mountain Highway to the south and Bayswater Road to the east. The park is also bounded by Dandenong Creek on the north and King Street to the west.

Council endorsed a Landscape Masterplan for Marie Wallace Bayswater Park in June 2015. It is anticipated that the Masterplan will be implemented in stages subject to available funding.

The first stage, completed in 2016, included construction of a central lawn area with a custom built stage area, a multi-activity area providing a range of activity zones including custom designed play elements and a picnic/BBQ area.

The second stage completed in 2017, included widening of Jim Abernathy Drive and additional car parking.
The next stage of works for construction in late 2018 and 2019, include a bike education training area, upgraded picnic facilities and a new pedestrian bridge between the two Bayswater Park ovals.
