Plans of management for urban parks identify what is important about the areas and how they are to be managed. A plan of management is intended to provide direction and guidance to the land custodian, management staff, visitors, neighbours, volunteers, and others with an interest in the area.
Plans of management are available for:
- Belconnen's urban parks, sportsgrounds and Lake Ginninderra
- Canberra's urban lakes and ponds
- Inner Canberra's urban parks and sportsgrounds
- Tuggeranong's urban parks and sportsgrounds
- Urban open space and public access sportsgrounds in the Gungahlin region
