Public Open Space Strategy - We need your help

Are you a user of one of the City's parks, reserves, sports ovals or other public open space in the City? If so, you will be interested in this project and may want to complete the survey and attend other engagement activities.

The City is developing a Public Open Space Strategy for the City of Nedlands. The Strategy will help shape the need for green, accessible parks and reserves across the council area based on current demand and future growth.

This project is being undertaken in a number of stages:

  • Stage 1: Understand how the community value and use the open space
  • Stage 2: Review of feedback, ideas and issues identified
  • Stage 3: Development of the draft Strategy
  • Stage 4: Adoption of the Strategy



Currently, the City is assessing the existing infrastructure, and potential uses and opportunities for each park and seeking your feedback. We want to learn more about how you use your local parks, what you like about them, or what you feel can be improved.

There will be opportunities for you to engage with the City throughout the life of this project.
