Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey and provided feedback for Frank Gibson Reserve, Dick Murdoch Reserve and Whittaker Avenue Reserve. We are currently reviewing your feedback and will share a summary of what we heard along with next steps for each of these park upgrades early in the new year.

Love Laverton Parks

Eight local community parks in Laverton are being updated as part of the Love Laverton Parks project, a key Better Places Laverton initiative towards making Laverton ‘Cleaner and Greener’. Each of these parks are unique. As a starting point, we’re seeking your input into Frank Gibson Reserve, Dick Murdoch Reserve and Whittaker Avenue Reserve. We want to hear about your favourite parks and how you’d like them to look and feel in the future.

As a key initiative towards making Laverton ‘Cleaner and Greener’, the Love Laverton Parks project will upgrade eight local community parks as a single co-ordinated and fast-tracked program with a focus on:

  • creating a unique feel to each of Laverton’s parks that offer a variety of activities for people of all ages and abilities
  • upgrading and improving existing facilities and equipment
  • adding new landscaping and tree planting that will enhance the green character of Laverton
  • improving pedestrian and cyclist pathway connections, to increase accessibility and help to tie the parks together into a network

We are excited to announce that the first parks to receive these fast-tracked upgrades are:

  • Frank Gibson Reserve
  • Dick Murdoch Reserve
  • Whittaker Avenue Reserve
