Roger Free Park, Sunbury – Proposed Park Improvements

In September 2017 Council invited feedback from the community for improvements to Roger Free Park, Sunbury.

Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas and gave feedback through the surveys, online and at the pop up session at the park. Over 70 people shared their ideas.

The improvements that were most important to participants were:

  • new park furniture
  • connecting paths
  • more large shady trees

Along with new park furniture, a large proportion of participants were supportive of connecting paths across the site, primarily from Ligar Street to Pasley Street.

Feedback in regards to dogs at the park has been analysed and it found there were strong opinions for both maintaining Roger Free Park as a reserve requiring dogs to be on leash, and also for creating a dog off leash area. No changes will be made to the current dogs on leash status, and the feedback will be part of the wider Hume Dogs in Public Places Review, being undertaken later in 2018.

A large proportion of participants supported the proposed new location for play towards the centre of the reserve. The most commonly requested activities for the new playspace were:

  • swings
  • slides
  • balancing items
  • climbing items
  • sensory items

Feedback closed Friday 13 April.

A concept plan including community feedback can be found here.

It is anticipated works will commence in the second half of 2018.
