Sydenham Park is a reserve in Keilor North with inherent environmental, cultural and geological values.
Its distinct topography with dividing escarpment, river valleys with vistas across the Maribyrnong Valley, grasslands, fauna and flora population provides an extraordinary backdrop to this parkland setting.
It is fundamental to consider the opportunity to protect, preserve and enhance these natural characteristics to sustain a resilient Sydenham Park for the future.
The 2020 Sydenham Park Master Plan aims to build on the existing body of work that was produced as part of the Sydenham Park Strategic Plan May 2004. It is informed by Brimbank Planning Scheme, Council strategic documents and the Melbourne Airport Master Plan 2018 overlays.
When Council adopted the Sydenham Park Master Plan in 2020, Council sought an update to the plan upon the completion of the following:
- Cultural Heritage management Plan
- Robertson Homestead Feasibility Study
- Flora and Fauna Study
- Park Access Infrastructure Design.
These have been completed and Council adopted the Sydenham Master Plan Addendum at the Council Meeting held 15 March 2022.
