In 2021 Council undertook a range of consultation initiatives to understand the community's aspirations for the Park and to provide a clear vision for the future. The community was clear in their message that Ridge Park is already well loved due to the natural site qualities including open space, tree canopy, Glen Osmond Creek and biodiversity. The desire for change is therefore through a range of improvements to existing features rather than whole scale changes to the structure or character of the Park.
Through the consultation three key themes emerged which guided the development of the draft master plan.
- Junior Sport and Community Recreation
- Wilding, Storm Water Control and Harvesting
- Community Services, Facilities and Infrastructure
