Draft Willow Park masterplan


Wodonga Council is undertaking the development of a new masterplan for Willow Park, intended to guide the future planning for this public open space.

This forms part of a project the council is undertaking to update the masterplans for Belvoir and Willow parks and the House Creek connection.

The current Willow Park masterplan was developed in 2011. Since then, Wodonga has seen significant population growth and Willow Park has undergone many environmental and infrastructure changes and inclusions.

The need and demand for public open spaces which provide passive, informal, non-structured areas for leisure activities has also increased, so too has cultural awareness and policy that recognises the role of open spaces in environmental protection and climate resilience.

This project aims to strategically address those public open space needs while creating a planned approach for the development of these two significant parks and associated amenities, to meet the recreation, leisure and environmental sustainability needs of the city. It will also recognise and respond to the cultural values, natural features and unique character of each site.

Specialist consultants ROSS Planning, in collaboration with Wodonga Council, local sporting clubs, schools and community stakeholder groups, will develop the Willow Park masterplan.

As part of the consultation process for this project, Wodonga residents are invited to provide feedback directly to the consultants during drop-in sessions at the park. Details of these sessions are as follows.

Thursday, February 3:
  • morning session: 6.30am  to 8.30am at the large undercover barbecue shelter between car park and skate park
  • afternoon session: 5pm to 7pm at the large undercover barbecue shelter between the car park and skate park

For anyone who is interested in providing feedback, but is unable to attend the drop-in sessions, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Walker from ROSS Planning via direct email – scottw@rossplanning.com.au
