Broadmeadows Town Park Performance Pavilion

Project Background

In 2019 Hume City Council with support from the Victorian Government Department of Justice upgraded Broadmeadows Town Park to improve access, safety and make it a destination for community gathering. The works included new paths, trees, gardens, lawn areas, BBQ shelter, furniture and lighting.

The next stage of the Broadmeadows Town Park upgrade features the development of a performance pavilion to the south of the circular lawn. The performance pavilion will support events and festivals as well as everyday activities in the Broadmeadows Town Centre. Council and the Victorian Government have allocated $864k in 2021/22 to construct the performance pavilion.

Concept Design Feedback


An online survey was available asking for thoughts on the performance pavilion and stage and how the facility and space would be used. The feedback will be used to finalise the Concept Design for the Broadmeadows Town Park Performance Pavilion.

The Draft Concept Design

In August 2020, Council engaged an architect to develop a concept for the new outdoor performance pavilion.

Key features of the draft concept design include:

  • Multiple orientations and space for large and small activities and events
  • An elevated main stage 10x5m size with an extension capability
  • Illuminated fascia to provide programable light and colour, similar to Town Hall Broadmeadows
  • Engineered roof structure suitable for stage mounting lighting and sound equipment
  • A retractable panel that tilts down from the roof to provide a backdrop for the main stage
  • Single and three phase power, data cabling, architectural lighting, rigging points and audio.

When designing this outdoor performance space, we wanted to:

  • Make it for everyone, every day, and different weather conditions
  • Make it flexible to support different activities and events
  • Make it contemporary with a clean, fresh, and breathable design to suit its central urban park location
