The Fawckner Drive Precinct has been identified by Council as a key community outdoor space. The precinct is comprised of the Skate Park, BMX track, Basketball courts, RV parking, and green spaces surrounding the Library.
Council has received grant funding to activate the precinct through the use of public art, new community infrastructure, and other initiatives identified during consultation. Council has allocated additional funds from it's budget toward the revitalisation of the BMX track as result of community feedback during the last budget process.
The ensure the best result possible for the community Council have engaged open space specialists, Playce, to assist in the consultation and design process of a precinct plan. Playce have designed an 'Ideas Plan' to inspire community input for the potential opportunities for Fawckner Drive.
The final Fawckner Drive Masterplan will consolidate feedback from the community and Council to map out future possibilities for the precinct.

- Improved picnic and barbeque areas
- Upgraded skate park and new pump track
- Increased community market footprint with night market capability
