Congratulations PLA Advisory member and Frank Stewart Distinguished Service award winner Cathy Kiss. Cathy is a Senior Open Space Planner at City of Melbourne and recently launched the Domain Parklands 20 year plan. Four years in the making the plan seeks to improve visitor access and respond to the challenges of population growth and climate change.


The Domain Parklands are the lungs of our city, our answer to New York’s Central Park or London’s Hyde Park. Many people will fondly recall attending concerts in the Domain, picnicking by the Yarra or running around the Tan as a daily ritual. Last night the Future Melbourne Committee approved a 20-year plan for the iconic Domain Parklands that seeks to improve visitor access and respond to the challenges of population growth and climate change 🍃💕

In 2018 City of Melville City won the prestigious Playspace Award for their Piney Lakes Sensory Play Park. The award is given to projects under $500,000 that involve a range of stakeholders, contribute to the creation of a sense of "place'' for the community and exhibit landscape and/or structural design innovation that delights and aids childhood development. Piney Lakes certainly fits the bill. Which project do you think deserves the title this year? Nominations close 29th March https://lnkd.in/fvH3uzM #parksandleisure #awards
