Making the most of West Park for our Community


The Burnie City Council and the University of Tasmania have embarked on a process to explore all the future possibilities for West Park and the opportunities it enables for our region. 

As this much-loved community site enters its next phase, we’re inviting you to be part of our work to develop a plan that will guide all operations at West Park into the future.

The first part of this process is agreeing on a set of principles to underpin all future uses. During our previous community conversations we heard that you value:

  • Community
  • Accessibility
  • Place
  • Sustainability

We'd like to know if these are still the right fit for West Park, or if other principles should be considered.

Whether you represent a local school, business, government, sporting, cultural or community group, this is your chance to help shape a vibrant future for West Park. 

Further details about the principles and information about the process are available below:
The Future of West Park - Next Steps(PDF, 2MB)


Community feedback can be submitted until Saturday, 31 July  

This will then be developed into a shared vision

Our plan for West Park to be released in November  



Burnie City Council and the University of Tasmania look forward to your input and involvement to ensure West Park continues to be a welcoming and inclusive location that is utilised and loved by all.

Your feedback will be used to help develop a plan that will guide all operations at West Park into the future.
