Darebin Creek Landscape Master PlanParks and Trails
Location: City of Whittlesea
Consultancy Services: Master Planning
The study area for the Darebin Creek Landscape Master Plan is the section of the Darebin Creek Trail from Holt Park, Bundoora (south of Settlement Road) to Lancia Park, Epping (north of Findon Road). The Darebin Creek Shared Path Upgrade Project includes works being undertaken to convert the existing granitic sand path to a 2.5m wide concrete path. The upgrade will eventually provide users access to a safe and uninterrupted pedestrian and cycle path providing a major metropolitan route from Epping North to the Yarra River.
The Master Plan prepared by ACLA, following extensive site analysis, provides landscape guidelines to support the shared path construction, including recommendations to help improve the connectedness, safety and visual amenity for users by enhancing landscape treatments along the route and at key destinations. An integrated wayfinding strategy was prepared in conjunction with ACLA’s report and together the works will accommodate the considerable increase in projected users.
