VIC DELWP - VEAC Metropolitan Melbourne Open Space Inventory (Polygons)

The dataset presents the footprint of areas of public land (1) and local council land (2) that have been classified as public open space. The dataset attributes describe the public open space category and owner over 31 municipalities in metropolitan Melbourne. Public open space is defined as 'those areas of public land and local council land that have an accepted and ongoing community use for outdoor recreation and informal activities, and that are freely accessible to the public'.

The Victorian Environmental Assessment Council (VEAC) Metropolitan Melbourne Open Space Inventory does not include Commonwealth land; schools; cemeteries; gated facilities; road plantations; closed roads; concourses around stadia; inaccessible Trust for Nature properties; 'services and utilities' public land that does not have an ongoing recreational use; future open space (e.g. areas covered by Public Acquisition Overlays); and uncategorised public land.

'Public Land' is Crown land and freehold land owned by Victorian Government Agencies. 'Local Council Land' is freehold land owned by local councils.
