Help plan for the future of Sydenham Park

You’re invited to share your ideas for the future of Sydenham Park, in Keilor North, next to Organ Pipes National Park. 

The 264 hectare site has great potential for tourism, and ideas are welcome from the visitor industry.

Brimbank Council has established a Sydenham Park Master Plan Steering Committee to oversee development of the plan. 

The committee includes Councillors, representatives from the Brimbank community and representatives from key stakeholder organisations including:

  • Parks Victoria
  • Melbourne Water
  • Sydenham and District Historical Society 
  • Friends of Maribyrnong Valley
  • Friends of Organ Pipes
  • Wurundjeri Tribe Land Compensation Heritage Council Inc.

“Sydenham Park is Council’s largest public open space and a wonderful natural asset with significant flora and fauna populations and sites of cultural heritage significance" said Brimbank Mayor, Cr Margaret Giudice.

Cr Bruce Lancashire, Chair of the Sydenham Park Committee said many people might not be aware of the importance and untapped potential of Sydenham Park, because the majority of the park was not currently open to the public.

“Sydenham Park is an amazing space with unlimited possibilities for a range of active and passive recreation. A previous Master Plan for the site highlighted the potential for sport and outdoor recreation.

“As a community we have the opportunity to create a truly remarkable open space for generations to enjoy,” Cr Lancashire said.

Consultation is open until Wednesday 28 February.
