Next Steps - Updated March 2022

Council has worked very closely with the Project Reference Group (PRG), including representatives from Kananook Creek Association and Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation, and has recently finalised the landscape drawings for Stage 1 implementation based on the feedback received during the Detailed Design phase.

In preparation of the construction, preliminary weed removal works has commenced in March 2022 and it is anticipated that the Stage 1 construction will commence early April following the tender evaluation process.

Project Background - pre 2022

Thank you for your input into the Kananook Creek Gardens Vision Plan

Frankston City Council has developed the 2021 Kananook Creek Gardens Vision Plan in partnership with the community, local residents, park users and the Traditional Owners, the Bunurong People.

Following an extensive community consultation with the wider community, Council endorsed the 2021 Vision Plan and the Engagement Report on Monday 19 July.

What is the Kananook Creek Gardens Vision Plan about?

The site has significant ecological value. This element of the Vision Plan is about undertaking ecological and vegetation work to showcase the area’s significant pre-colonisation native plants.

The relationship between Kananook Creek and its Traditional Owners and custodians will be acknowledged, celebrated and maintained by sharing stories and cultural events.

Research partnerships and education will promote appreciation, and a desire to preserve this place for generations to come.

Enhancements will be constructed to allow us to enjoy the creek and its surrounding natural beauty.

Landscape improvements have the potential to create a unified landscape character, strengthen the identity of the park and create a memorable experience for all.
