The King George Park Plan of Management was developed to guide Council and the community in the future enhancement, maintenance and management of the foreshore reserve.  King George Park was proclaimed in 1912 and it’s history has seen it as the location of a United States service mens encampment during World War II.  Since the 1970’s it has predominantly served as recreational fields and parkland.

The Plan sought to integrate the diverse demands on the park for both organised and informal recreation into a cohesive direction for the future.  This required review of options to address spatial and operational conflicts and to broker effective solutions for these.  The plan emphasised the importance of the foreshore promenade which is a key node on the iconic Bay Run around Iron Cove

The plan was prepared in liaison with the Crown Lands Division being Crown Land under care control and management by Council.
