McCormack Park Master Plan
McCormack Park is a beloved community park on Jennings Street in Laverton. It has been a place for residents to relax, exercise, play and skate for years, and its reimaging will provide greater opportunities for the community to connect with each other and nature. The draft master plan has been developed following two stages of community consultation. It takes into consideration what residents already love about the area, and what their needs and wants are for the park in the future.
The master plan includes a story telling river, water play workshop, viewing and climbing tower, bush trail, bridge improvements, socialising hubs, picnic facility expansion, multisport court, exercise hub, amphitheatre, redesigned carpark and pathway improvements.

Council is pleased to advise that the design works for the McCormack Park play space upgrade are in progress. The play space upgrade works are expected to commence in late 2024, with further details becoming available in June 2024.
Council has many construction projects underway across the municipality. As a result, some materials have become available that would be suitable for use for the play space upgrade. For instance, clean soil, basalt boulders and cypress pine posts. By sharing materials between sites, Council can ensure less waste is generated and reduce costs for imported materials. This is not only good for the environment but also helps achieve a well-balanced and cost-efficient outcome.
