Merri Common, Open Space, City of Darebin
For Merri Stationeers Community Group, 2011 ongoing
Glas Landscape Architecture prepared a concept design and staged masterplan for the community led landscape improvement works for the local park at Merri Station. Stakeholders include VicTrack, City of Darebin, Metro trains. Glas’ masterplan suggests 11 individual character zones based on the existing site and needs of the local users. These character precincts have been divided into individual projects, allowing the staged approach to funding applications and gradual implementation by volunteer labour. Two projects have been completed so far with a third project having received funding and in detailed design.
