The Knox Open Space Plan represents a new approach to open space planning and management. The vision is one which will be sustainable, attractive and green. It will provide for a diversity of leisure activities, and enable people to enjoy nature, engage with others, learn and play. The open space network will be well-connected and accessible, and contribute to the natural systems of the city. The Plan has four strategic directions: Create healthy creek corridors that people love; activate community hubs; empower the community to be stewards and engender a network of sustainable spaces. Open space has many facets and the relationships between these are often complex. Recognising this the Plan looks at open space through nine lenses: biodiversity, connections, culture, economy. leisure, people, play, sustainability and water. The Plan outlines a methodology and ranking mechanism to prioritise planning delivery.
