Have your say on the elements of the playground area and other open spaces in the reserve that are important to you.

We want the play space to include opportunities for all residents, visitors and age groups to engage and play in their own way.

In late May 2020, we want to hear your thoughts on how to bring this concept to life. In particular, we want all children and young people of Hobsons Bay to get involved.

Follow the project to register you or your family's interest in being a part of the upcoming community engagement.

Project overview

Council is upgrading Donald McLean Reserve to provide the community with an improved open space and recreation resource into the future.

Donald McLean Reserve Master Plan underwent extensive community engagement and was endorsed by Council in 2013. Due to the design of the West Gate Tunnel and the off ramps leading to Hyde Street, this plan required revision to suit the change in environment.

In 2019 we gathered your ideas and aspirations for the reserve and, using your feedback, the Donald McLean Reserve Improvement Plan was designed. Projects identified in the improvement plan are already underway with upgrades to the two sports grounds (including new floodlighting) and the cricket nets and multi-purpose courts.

Earlier this year, we sought your input into the design of pathways, landscaping and park furniture surrounding the new cricket practice nets.

Help us to realise the next element of the project - the play space and other open spaces in and around the reserve.

What have we heard so far?
