Centennial Park Drive Reserve

Consultation has concluded

Background

Hume City Council is planning improvements to Centennial Park Drive Reserve.

The works will be an opportunity to: 

  • improve play and exercise equipment
  • provide social spaces for families and large group gatherings
  • improve the tennis court precinct
  • improve amenities and landscaping
  • improve walking and cycling connectivity.

Centennial Drive Park Reserve also contains a retarding basin and wetlands which are Melbourne Water managed assets which may influence the park improvements. The retarding basin provides for the detention of flood water to protect downstream reaches, while the wetlands provide for treatment of stormwater. Any works proposed below the asphalt path may impact the 100- year flood and /or Melbourne Water assets and are subject to approval from Melbourne Water.

Hume City Council is working in partnership with the community to develop and install a permanent Stolen Generations Marker at Centennial Park Drive Reserve. The Marker will acknowledge the harm caused to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities by Australian governments' removal of children. The Marker will serve as a reminder about the injustice caused by successive governments and the ongoing impacts today. A working group selected Centennial Park Drive Reserve as the preferred site with the Stolen Generation Marker located on the southern side of the reserve approximately 80m from the playspace. More information is available on Council's website: Hume Stolen Generations Marker Project

How to participate 

Council sought feedback from park users, including children, about how they used the park is in May 2022. Feedback for this project is now closed.
