What is Public Open Space?

Public Open Space describes land that is freely accessible by the community, for a variety of purposes.

In the City of Vincent, we have a number of public open spaces, including but not limited to: parks, reserves, sporting grounds, bushlands and special purpose spaces such as Mary Street Piazza.

The purpose of open space is to encourage a range of activities including walking, cycling, dog walking, social activities, informal sporting activity, play spaces, structured sport, bushland and events.

Why do we need a Public Open Space Strategy?

The purpose of the Public Open Space strategy will provide strategic direction and a framework to guide the management of open space within the City of Vincent.
