Following on from our forum on 29 September on the history of the Domain Parklands, the City of Melbourne, as part of a review of its Domain Parklands* Master Plan, invites you and your friends to consider the future of this site, one of the 'green lungs' of our city.
How do we bring all that is wonderful about Domain Parklands into the future and manage the tension between vulnerable assets and extra demands, urban growth, community expectations and the impacts of climate change? Panellists will consider an Indigenous perspective of caring for country; the value of the place to our health and wellbeing; the impact of growth and how to manage increased usage. Come along and have your say and hear how to participate in the review of the City of Melbourne Domain Parklands Master Plan.
