The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) has commenced the process to develop a master plan for Yarra Park.

Yarra Park is one of Melbourne’s premier public parklands, it also provides the setting for the major sporting facilities of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and the Richmond Cricket Ground/Punt Road Oval.

Yarra Park also has a significant indigenous cultural heritage and is noted for its landscape and sporting heritage.

Conversation Co is thrilled to lead the community engagement aspect of the master plan development and we have been busy “popping-up” at Yarra Park to talk to local residents and visitors about what they would like to see! There is also an online survey for community members to share their feedback and workshops are planned for early February. 

We would welcome you to learn more about the project, or provide your feedback via:
