High Line park idea is “progressing”

03 Apr 2019

The City of Melbourne has developed a high-level concept plan in response to Lord Mayor Sally Capp’s pre-election promise of a “high line” park.

Cr Capp’s concept promised: “A new tract of public space ... would run from Birrurung Marr to Southern Cross Station.”

“The park, modelled on New York’s iconic High Line park, would see decking installed to create parkland precincts at Federation Square, Flinders St Station and in front of Etihad [now Marvel] Stadium.”

The concept was later extended to Ron Barassi Snr Park in Docklands.

Asked by CBD News for an update on progress at the March 19 Future Melbourne Committee, Cr Capp invited the council’s director of city strategy and place, Claire Ferres Miles, to explain.

Ms Ferres Miles said: “We have had a co-design charrette with a series of stakeholders that either own land and/or manage land along the north bank of the river and also through Docklands and that’s included a series of state government agencies including Parks Victoria, Development Victoria and the Department of Energy, Land and Water and a series of council officers and some consultants and design experts.”

“And that was really exploring what the opportunities could be. And from that co-design charrette, we’ve developed a very high-level concept plan.”

Cr Capp said: “So that’s where we’re at and it’s progressing.”
