We’re building a new park for Doncaster Hill. This project is part of the Doncaster Hill Strategy (2002, revised 2004) and Manningham Open Space Strategy.

It will include:

  • outdoor seating
  • a BBQ area
  • drinking fountain
  • public art
  • large open lawn areas
  • a playspace
  • nature play
  • canopy tree planting
  • bike hoops; and more.


When will the works happen?

Works began in December 2023 and we're on track for the park to open mid-2024.

As part of the project, we will reconstruct a section of the road and footpath on Hepburn Road, between Gifford and Walker Streets.

As part of the project, we will reconstruct a section of the road and footpath on Hepburn Road, between Gifford and Walker Streets.

The intersection of Hepburn Road and Short Street will be closed from 29 April 2024 until early June 2024, to complete these works. Read more.

Where is it?

The new park will be located on Hepburn Road, between Walker Street and Gifford Road in Doncaster.


Why is it needed?

The Doncaster Hill Strategy (2002, revised 2004) identified the need for a new park to buffer high-density residential zones and provide much-needed open space to residents.

The park offers recreational options, including play and relaxation, while also fostering a sense of community through new public facilities, greenery, and public art, giving these areas a vibrant urban character and a unique identity.


How will the works affect me?

Once we commence works, there may be some noise and traffic changes required to allow for construction. We’ll do our best to minimise any impacts on residents and visitors.
