Have your say on the Stromlo Forest Park master plan

Stromlo

The updated Stromlo Forest Park master plan has been released and we are seeking your feedback. The master plan includes a pool, an enclosed oval, district playing fields, tourist accommodation, a road cycling circuit and equestrian trails.

The vision for Stromlo Forest Park is that it will grow over time into an even more popular sporting destination, and a major community asset. The updated master plan provides a strategy for the evolution of the Park and will continue to guide budget decisions in years to come.

The updated Stromlo Forest Park master plan aims to:

  • improve the Park in to an even more successful and popular community asset that will meet the needs of the community and park users as our city continues to expand;
  • deliver new playing fields, an enclosed oval with an arena for athletes and spectators, tourist accommodation and a pool facility.
  • provide opportunities for private sector businesses and organisations to invest in the Park by expanding the park’s capacity for commercial viability and hospitality activities;
  • facilitate new sporting activities that will activate the precinct to showcase Canberra to the world by continuing to attract and promote national and international sporting events, developing local talent and boosting tourism.
