  • The Future of Camperdown Park and Oval

    On Public Exhibition - the Camperdown Park draft Plan of Management and Master Plan

    Catering to sports lovers including cricket, rugby and tennis, the park also includes a children's playground, two artist gallery/studios, a museum and heritage items. Its beautiful trees and open space ensure it's well-loved by locals who like to walk, relax, enjoy a coffee or picnic with friends. Others jog, use the adult exercise equipment or play informal basketball or unicycle hockey. Council sought feedback in late 2013  from people who use the park or live in the locality to help create these draft plans. Click here for more information and to have your say.
