Construction update

We’re building a new park on Hepburn Road in Doncaster, between Walker Street and Gifford Street. While we've made considerable progress on this project, we've also had some unexpected delays.

Construction for this park will now begin in September 2023 with the park open to the public in May 2024.

What has caused the delay?

The project has experienced delays due to the ongoing impact of overwhelming demand in the construction industry and labour shortages, as well as the complex nature of the site. The topography of the site includes a steep slope which needs to be accommodated in the design of the park. We are keen to ensure that the park merges smoothly with the surrounding footpaths and road and to ensure the park drains stormwater effectively. As a part of our design, we're also committed to protecting existing mature trees.

What is the next step in the project?

We are now finalising the process to complete the detailed design of the park.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these issues.

We're committed to delivering a high-quality park that meets the needs of the community now and into the future.
