Community Consultation - Park at 29 Blossom Crescent in Cambridge

Council is seeking your feedback and ideas for the design of the new park and playspace at 29 Blossom Crescent in Cambridge.

This park was identified as a priority in the Cambridge Master Plan in 2016 and has subsequently been funded by Council with $350,000 for the 2018-19 financial year.

Given the size and location of the park, it has been categorised as a ‘local community park’ in accordance with our Open Space Strategy Principles. A ‘local community park’ is intended to primarily service residents from the surrounding suburb who will likely arrive by foot. These parks provide informal recreation and parkland space with turfed areas, scattered trees, minor play equipment, seating and walking paths.

Given the categorisation, major infrastructure items such as barbeques or public toilets will not be considered for this site.

We would like your ideas and suggestions for the design, aesthetics and facilities to be provided in this park and playspace.

Below is the draft master plan for the local park.
