Strathmore

Strathmore is largely a residential neighbourhood encompassing Salmon Reserve, the southern edge of Woodland Street, the eastern part of Five Mile Creek and the edge of the Moonee Ponds Creek. In the north, the Tullamarine Freeway forms a hard edge. From Bulla Road in the west to the predominant spine of Pascoe Vale Road, Strathmore is undulating and green.

20-minute neighbourhood

Find schools, parks and public transport in Strathmore using the directions marked on the footpath.

As part of MV2040, a long term plan for the municipality to deliver projects at a neighbourhood level, the ‘20-minute Neighbourhood’ project has been developed and is being rolled out in the pilot suburb of Strathmore.

Wayfinding decals, maps and posters placed around the neighbourhood will be used as a visual prompt for community members to discover places they may miss from inside a vehicle.

The main focus of the campaign is to promote a pedestrian friendly network, highlighting walking as a first option for journeys under 20 minutes.

Along with an increase in incidental exercise the project plans to create awareness of what community facilities, services and assets are accessible by foot.

Get active, take a photo and tag #walkstrath to inspire other members of your community.
