Pryor Park Management Plan

2011 Pryor Park  Management Plan – by Jonathan Robinson

This Management Plan was  written as part of the required studies  for the completion of a Diploma of  Ornamental Horticulture.  The area of Pryor Park offered me an exciting chance to  engage in a very interesting and positive  line of research, out of which I  was able to create a future vision  for the park and make recommendations  based on that vision for its ongoing  sound management.

To complete this Plan  my research brought me into contact with  the main stakeholders in the park; these  being, the City of Ballarat, the Department  of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and  the People for Pryor Park, all of  which I  would like to acknowledge  again for their contributions and assistance  during the compilation of this study.

It was quickly established  through my research that Pryor Park has  and continues to play a strong role  in the overall character and liveability  of Ballarat East, with its geographical  positioning sitting on the eastern outskirts  of Ballarat East, situated precisely in  the middle of a critical urban bottle-neck  within the North-South Ballarat Region Wildlife  Corridor.

This Plan highlights that  although the park’s geographical positioning  presents the park with many challenges  for its ongoing management of native flora  and fauna, its positioning also presents  it with many golden opportunities for  Community Education based around conservation  issues, Passive Recreation which also revolve  around conservation values and the continued  enhancement of the Ballarat East’s character  and liveability.
