The Intercultural Garden Community Consultation has concluded. We are developing a consultation

report that will guide us in developing a final concept for the garden.

The City of Ballarat is seeking public feedback on a new Intercultural Garden space.

The garden is planned to be in the City Oval precinct at the corner of Sturt and Pleasant Streets.

The project involves making minor changes to the current garden space and to provide a safe area where small community events may be held.

The proposal features a display garden on the corner of Sturt of Sturt and Pleasant streets that would feature themed planting displays that reflect Ballarat celebrations.

Other features to be included would be:

  • A community flagpole
  • A barbecue and shelter
  • A circular paved platform (10-metre diameter) at ground level for performances or gatherings
  • Additional plants and garden areas

A concept design for the Intercultural Garden has been developed and the community is invited to provide feedback between Wednesday 1 February and Tuesday 28 February.

Download and view the garden concept plans on the top right of this page. 

Alternatively, there will be five drop-in consultation sessions on-site where you can visit and collect hard copies of the plans. These drop-in consultation sessions will occur at the “pods” located at the corner of Sturt and Pleasant Streets at the following times:

  • Wednesday 8 February 4pm-5.30pm
  • Thursday 9 February 12pm-1.30pm
  • Wednesday 15 February 11.30am-1pm
  • Thursday 16 February 5pm-6.30pm
  • Wednesday 22 February 4pm-5.30pm

There will be an additional drop-in session to be held at the Ballarat Regional Multicultural Council (BRMC), 25-39 Barkly Street Ballarat, between 12pm-1.30pm on Wednesday 22nd February.

There will also be copies of the plans available from the City of Ballarat offices located at 25 Armstrong Street South, Ballarat.
