More about this project

Located in Upper Ferntree Gully at the foothills to the Dandenong Ranges, Kings Park is a hub for local sport and recreation and the heart of regional baseball, junior athletics, AFL and cricket in the Upper Ferntree Gully region. The facilities set in an attractive and much-loved parkland setting encourage local residents and visitors to get outside to play, exercise, walk the dog and be active, whatever their fitness level or ability.

In 2021, we commenced a Masterplan for Kings Park. This design process will set the strategic direction for the park and propose improvements that will expand on the park's existing features, reflect changing community needs for this open space to ensure current and future generations will continue enjoy and utilise it.

The development of a masterplan for Kings Park is in line with the Knox Open Space Plan 2012-2022, which was developed with the Knox Community.

The masterplan will set out the future direction and goals to ensure that both existing club and community needs are met and improved on through upgrades to the existing sporting infrastructure, improvements to the informal community spaces and trails and through environmental and sustainable initiatives.

Please note, this is a draft masterplan not a detailed design plan.
