Connecting open space along the Merri River

The community plan Warrnambool 2040; Council's sustainability plan, Green Warrnambool; and the Warrnambool Open Space Strategy, have highlighted how much Warrnambool residents value our open spaces and access to natural areas.
Through consultation for these plans the community has told Council that connectivity to and between our parks, environmental restoration and access to waterways could be improved.
Council has started an open space precinct plan for public land between Manuka Drive Reserve and St James Park on the south side of the Merri River. Parks in the precinct include: Manuka Dr Reserve, Tarhook Road reserve, Platypus Park (off Membrey Way), Russell’s Creek junction, Bromfield Street weir, Queens Road Reserve, and St James Park. 

The purpose of the plan is to set the future direction for this important riverside precinct and look at how connectivity, access to the river and the environment can be improved.

Whilst there may be limits to what is possible in the precinct due to areas of flood prone land, we are seeking your feedback on what you value about the precinct and how you would like to see the precinct develop in the future.
