Why we're consulting
The Draft Martin Park Master Plan aims to ensure the continued sustainable growth of the sports and events held Martin Park, by guiding development, and retaining the values that contribute to the appeal of the site to the community.
Earlier this year, consultants ROSS Planning heard from local clubs, community stakeholder groups and the wider community. Feedback received from community members has informed the draft master plan.
At its November meeting, the council endorsed the Draft Martin Park Master Plan to go on public exhibition for community members to have their say.
Improvements proposed in the draft master plan are designed to enhance existing features and improve connectivity while maintaining the natural environment of the park.
Martin Park has an existing master plan, developed in 2015. Action items from this plan have been largely completed. Martin Park is a sporting precinct supporting Australian Rules football, disability groups, netball and cricket. The facility is well-known throughout the area for the grandstand providing views across the main oval. The second oval is also recognised as one of the premier cricket fields in the region and is regularly chosen as the venue for finals matches. The facilities cater for Wodonga Bulldogs Football and Sports Club, Wodonga Junior Football Club, Wodonga Saints Football Netball Club, and Wodonga Cricket Club.
It is a key site for connectivity from a north-south and east-west perspective. The site has access points and connections via road and path networks including multiple access points and direct connection with Willow Park. Its proximity to Willow Park and the Wodonga hospital require consideration in the planning of infrastructure development. The recently completed Willow Park Master Plan includes the proposed extension of the Martin Park car park to increase availability of spaces for the site for large events.
