The consultation period for this project is now closed. Thank you to everyone who contributed. A summary of 'What we Heard' from the community will be made available on this site very soon.

An upgrade of the park and playground

MacLean Reserve in Williamstown is due for a full upgrade next year. As a first step, Council would like to hear from the local community, St Mary’s Primary School community and the Williamstown Primary School community to better understand what they value about MacLean Reserve and its significance in the community.

What might this look like?

MacLean Reserve caters primarily to families within the immediate neighbourhood and students from St Mary’s Primary School.

The existing timber structure and other play equipment items need replacing due to their age and deteriorating condition. Access for children of all abilities is very limited with minimal accessible play equipment currently in place.

The trees in the reserve require protection to ensure they can continue to provide shade, amenity and habitat for many more years. The grassed areas of the reserve are also in poor condition and require restoration.

As a starting point, we invite you to view the pre-concept design in the Document Library on the right-hand side of the page, or by clicking here. This document includes some visuals of the existing site as well as some examples of play equipment, furniture and plantings that could be installed. Drawing on this document for some inspiration, please share your thoughts on the types of features along with any other aspirations you have for this space!

Have your say

We invite the community to

  • complete the feedback survey to ensure we have captured your thoughts on what the park and playground should include
  • submit further comments to the project team by emailing projects@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au or phone 1300 179 944

Feedback will be accepted until Thursday 17 September 2020.

Feedback and comments received will help Council shape the detailed concept plan of the park for further comments from the community.
