Consultation on the draft McCormack Master Plan has now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback during the consultation period.

Help us make McCormack Park amazing!

McCormack Park is a beloved community park on Jennings Street in Laverton. It has been a place for residents to relax, exercise, play and skate for years, and its reimaging will provide greater opportunities for the community to connect with each other and nature. The draft master plan has been developed following two stages of community consultation. It takes into consideration what residents already love about the area, and what their needs and wants are for the park in the future.

This draft master plan includes a story telling river, water play workshop, viewing and climbing tower, bush trail, bridge improvements, socialising hubs, picnic facility expansion, multisport court, exercise hub, amphitheatre, redesigned carpark and pathway improvements.

You can view the draft McCormack Park Master Plan or it can be found with a copy of the the draft McCormack Park Master Plan Background Report in the document library on the right hand side of this page.

You are now invited to have your say on this draft master plan.

As well as the overall draft master plan, we are also seeking your feedback on targeted items including:

  • the removal of the Williams Street bridge, and the construction of a new bridge at Thomas Street

Council recognises the community sentiment towards the Laverton Swim and Fitness Centre and the role it has played in providing recreation and fitness opportunities in the local community. it is for this reason that a master planning process has been launched to seek ideas from the Laverton community on reimaging McCormack Park, to understand the type of facilities and services that would encourage future activity in the park.

This consultation period closes 5pm Friday 23 September 2022.
