Open space is all publicly owned land mostly used for recreation, outdoor enjoyment and nature conservation. This includes public parks, gardens, reserves, waterways, as well as civic forecourts and plazas, but not school grounds.
The Boroondara Open Space Strategy describes the ways we manage our network of public open spaces. The strategy extends from 2013 to 2026 and contains suburb-by-suburb open space programs.
It responds to the community’s priorities, including biodiversity maintenance, protecting cultural heritage, and promoting health and wellbeing, while protecting open space for the future.
