SECTIONS of Clayton overshadowed by sky rail could be transformed by new parks, sports courts and urban gyms.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority wants community feedback on its proposal for the open spaces that will be created by elevating the train line at Clayton and Centre roads.
The authority plans to create three public space areas along the line in Clayton that will include sports courts, a dog park, skate park, urban gyms and space for market stalls.
It would also include a relocation of the RSL memorial and an “urban lounge” area, a small plaza with seating designed for people to meet and gather.

“It’s essential we test this proposal with the broader public to make sure there is real support for these ideas we are proposing,” Mr Summers said.
Chair of the Community Open Space Expert Panel, Professor Tim Entwisle, said there was a strong focus on all-age facilities.
“We are really looking to create spaces that look beyond the traditional to make sure there is something for everyone, no matter what stage of life you are (at),’’ Prof Entwisle said.
Dog owner Danielle Segal, who runs the Divine Grooming Salon in Mulgrave, said she was pleased with the dog park proposal.
“It’s definitely something we need more of around here — there’s so many dogs that don’t get to experience it otherwise,” Ms Segal said.
“People are constantly asking me if I know of any good dog-friendly parks around here that are fenced off.”
