Lewis Park Masterplan

The Lewis Park Masterplan provides a 20-year vision for inclusive public spaces, where visitors can engage with nature, culture and sport, and our natural environment can thrive.

About the Masterplan

The Masterplan was endorsed by Council in March 2019 following an extensive community consultation process. It will be delivered over a number of years as funding permits.

Stage One – Waterways

Working closely with Melbourne Water, Stage one aims to improve Lewis Park by making the waterway more accessible and enhancing:

  • returning Blind Creek to a natural creek between Scoresby Road and the retarding basin
  • creating wetlands for water quality treatment and habitat, and
  • improving access and connectivity through landscaping, pedestrian bridges and boardwalks.

The design is expected to be completed by mid 2022 with construction timing dependent on external funding becoming available.

Stage Two – Sports and Play Hub

The Sports and Play Hub looks to build on the active recreation, play and social spaces around the existing ovals.

Initiatives include:

  • improved sports pavilion
  • pump track
  • improved skate and BMX area
  • new nature playground
  • multi-purpose courts
  • flexible carparking for potential future community events, and
  • picnic spaces

Community consultation has occurred in July 2022, and the concept design is currently being revised. The final concept design is anticipated to be available from late March 2023.
