Glen Eira Active Recreation Action Plan

Our Have Your Say online survey is now closed.

Thank you for providing us with your feedback. Your feedback, combined with data, research and trends collated by InsideEDGE, helped to inform Glen Eira's Active Recreation Action Plan which can be viewed at - https://www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/our-city/sports-and-leisure/planning-for-open-space . The full report can we viewed in the agenda for the Council meeting held on 20 July 2021.


Community Survey

We wanted to know how you used local parks and reserves for physical activity and the types of facilities or programs that would encourage you to be more active in the future.

Glen Eira City Council is developing an Active Recreation Action Plan, which will focus on increasing active recreation in parks and reserves by creating environments and programs that encourage residents to get active in their local communities.

This short survey is helping us to ensure the future development of active recreation facilities and programs meets the community’s needs.

For the purposes of this survey, active recreation is any physical activity in public parks or reserves that is not:

  1. organised sport (e.g. part of a club), or
  2. use of playgrounds.

Active recreation activities include: walking, running, cycling, outdoor fitness activities, non-organised sport such as kick-to-kick with friends or family, skate and other “self-initiated” recreation activities.

    We Asked

    Active Recreation is physical activity that takes place in public open space. It usually involves use of outdoor fitness equipment, ball courts, hit up walls, golf birdie cages or skate parks.

    We led a series of engagement activities with the community to better understand:

    • How the community engages with active recreation facilities
    • What active recreation programs are provided in the community
    • Identify opportunities to address gaps in facilities and programming

    The findings from community engagement activities were then used to develop Glen Eira's Active Recreation Action Plan.

    You Said

    Through collecting written and verbal feedback, conducting surveys and in-park observations we determined:

    • There was a demand for individual and social sport and recreation opportunities across the community
    • There was a need for Council to continue investing in diverse and high quality active recreation facilities
    • There were opportunities for future programs to support the use of facilities and enhance participation in physical activity

    We Did

    After reviewing feedback from the engagement activities, we prepared the Active Recreation Action Plan to inform future investment in facilities and programs. Feedback collated through surveys and observations helped Council develop an Action Plan, which identifies active recreation hubs across Glen Eira to support physical activity close to home.
