Final Landscape Plan

Thank you for your feedback on the Major Crescent Reserve Landscape Plan. Your input has shaped the final plan that will help to improve the park for the community now and into the future.

Next steps

Detailed design work will begin on the new reserve features such as the playground, basketball shooting key area, picnic shelter, additional seats and picnic tables and will be completed by June 2023.

A staged delivery of construction works will follow and take place over the next 5 years subject to the allocation of future Council budget.

* Please note, subject to future funding, the northern section of the existing footpaths may be upgraded to become 3m wide and a shared bike and pedestrian path. A bike repair station, bike racks and additional seating along the section may also be provided as part of the upgrade project. Please contact the Open Space and Landscape Design team for further information.

The development of the Major Crescent Reserve Landscape Plan is part of the Knox Capital Works Program and Council’s commitment to upgrade ageing infrastructure. The purpose of the plan is to guide future growth and development and establish a new vision for future use of the reserve.

The Open Space team commenced the Landscape Plan process in July 2021. A background analysis and survey was conducted a review of the reserve attributes, taking into account the existing landscape characters, access, pathways and recreational facilities. Consideration was given to how the reserve functions as a whole and how different elements combine to best provide for our ever-changing and growing community.

The process of creating the Major Crescent Reserve Landscape Plan centered around feedback received from relevant stakeholders. The Open Space team worked with internal stakeholders between September to December 2021 to ensure other related Capital Works Program projects were incorporated into the development of the plan. Consultation with the community took place in February and August 2022. The input provided helped to identify the key elements the community felt would improve the park now and in to the future.

All feedback received has been under review and used by the Open Space team to finalise the Landscape Plan.
