According to their website, The Queens Domain Master Plan identifies projects to enhance the Domain's claim to be the City's premier park. These include improving access, lifting its appearance, improving road treatments and parking, better catering for passive recreation (walking, cycling and picnicking) and cultural activity throughout the park, and activating underutilised assets.

- Investigate a new contour loop mountain track below Summit Loop.
- Investigate a new western face mountain bike track.
- Promote entry level cycling and skills training for individuals and families on both road bikes and mountain bikes including development of:
»» a family learn to ride circuit around Summit Loop Road
»» off-road circuit of paths on designated fire access routes for introductory mountain bike riding (minimum width, surface standard treatment and drainage as required to minimise erosion)
»» install skills features in appropriate locations throughout the path network.The draft plans are on public exhibition until November 25th and you can can get further details at the Hobart City Council website.
