Berry District Park

Consultation has concluded


The Berry District Park area provides a unique opportunity to reinvigorate the northern edge of the township of Berry following the introduction of the Berry bypass road. The area is already popular with the local community and visitors, with a great diversity of active sporting and passive recreation activities.

The area referred to as 'Berry District Park' is located on the northern edge of the township of Berry. The site has an extensive frontage to North Street, with a secondary frontage to Woodhill Mountain Road on its eastern side. The northern extent of the District Park will be bounded by the new Princes Highway/Berry bypass road, which is currently under construction.


Project Vision

Broadly, the vision for the Berry District Park is to provide unique recreation facilities that builds on the existing successes of the area and facilitates future opportunities to improve and supplement broader community needs.


Berry District Park Master Plan

Following exhibition of the Master Plan and consultation with the community and government agencies, a number of changes were proposed to the plan. The plan was re-exhibited in order to gain community feedback on the proposed changed and inclusions.


What is currently happening?

Council staff established the Berry District Park Master Plan Working Group. Group membership included a broad range of community representatives and Councillors.

At Council’s Strategy and Assets meeting on 18 July, Council adopted the Berry District Park Master Plan Option A without amendment, which now enables detailed design to commence (MIN17.620). The detailed design will include the detailedlandscape design, land survey, feasibility analysis and delivery plan.

The centrepiece of the Park will be the nature playground. To inform the detailed design of this element, we will look to hold further consultations targeting children, young people and families to better understand how they engage with ‘nature play’.

Council will continue to work in partnership with The Berry Forum, Berry Rotary and the broader Berry community to complete this detailed design phase.
