A new look for Lee Reserve

Council's Open Space Strategy identified Lee Reserve as one of the five Altona Beach Precinct parks in need of improvement works. Council is proposing to undertake these improvement works in late 2021.

Lee Reserve is the smallest of the five parks and has very little shade or furniture. The park is located along the Esplanade, there is car parking across the road including two accessible parking bays, and the reserve has connections to the Pier Street shops and to the Bay Trail (shared trail).

Council would like to hear from the local community and other users of the reserve to better understand what they value about the reserve, its significance in the community, any key concerns and aspirations for the space.

Proposed improvement works

Council proposes to undertake the below improvement works at Lee Reserve, Altona

  • install park furniture complementing the foreshore and surrounds
  • increased shade
  • new barbecue and picnic facilities
  • upgrade of the reserve's irrigation
  • additional tree planting and garden beds

We recognise the importance of linking Lee Reserve with the foreshore and Altona Beach Precinct and have created a preliminary design for the upgrade of this space for consideration.
