Community input to inspire Cundy Park concept design

Alpine Shire Council hopes to revitalise the much-loved Cundy Park, with the Myrtleford community invited to contribute feedback for new concept designs for the space. 

29 February 2024

Located next to the Myrtleford Library on O’Donnell Avenue, Cundy Park has long been a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. 

The current park features an adventure playground, as well as picnic tables, electric BBQs and public toilets. 

As parts of the existing playground show signs of wear and tear, Council is keen to hear from the community about the future of this much loved space. 

Alpine Shire Mayor, John Forsyth, said gathering as much feedback from park users as possible was imperative in creating a space that was welcoming and accessible to all. 

"Cundy Park belongs to all of us, and it's important that everyone has a say in its future," he said. 

"We want to hear directly from park users about what they currently love, what they'd like to see improved, and how we can make the park more inclusive for everyone." 

Proposed concept designs will focus on revitalising the park to better serve the diverse needs of its users.  

This could involve enhancements to the playground, public amenities, pathways, and parking areas.  

Cr Forsyth said the goal is to create a space that reflects the desires and values of the community. 

"We're inviting residents, families, and children to be active participants in this process," he said.  

"Your ideas and feedback will shape the vision for Cundy Park's future." 

The well utilised skate park within Cundy Park will remain as is, whilst the rest of the park and playground will be considered as part of the concept plans. 

Council encourages everyone to get involved by completing an online survey and sharing images or drawings of parks they love.  

"Together, we can ensure that Cundy Park remains a vibrant and inclusive space that brings joy to all who visit," Cr Forsyth said.
