Welcome

Thank you to everyone who contributed.

We will be seeking further feedback in September 2022.

Project Update - Next Steps

We have completed an Issues and Opportunities Report to guide the development of the draft master plan which will consider all the feedback provided by the community during our initial consultation.

Where to from here?

We are now developing the draft master plan in consultation with key stakeholders to be presented to Council in August, 2022.

Following this, the draft plan will be open for the community to provide feedback to the proposed plan.


BACKGROUND

The City of Greater Geelong invited the community and stakeholders to help shape the future vision for the Hamlyn Park Recreation Reserve through a new master plan.

Changes over the last decade have highlighted a need to review and refresh the vision for the reserve. The current plan for the reserve was developed in 2010.

The project will seek to address issues and opportunities across the entire reserve, including active and passive recreation facilities and connections to Western Heights College. The plan will aim to balance the sporting and recreation needs of user groups with the interests of the broader community.

The scope of the plan will cover:

  • Cultural and environmental values;
  • Landscape and amenity;
  • Pedestrian and vehicle movement and safety;
  • Sporting infrastructure requirements;
  • The needs of tenant clubs and groups and adjacent schools; and
  • Open space and playground.

The Reserve:

Hamlyn Park Reserve is located at Calvert Street in Hamlyn Heights. It is nestled within a residential area as well as bordering two schools to the east and west.
The reserve has a large range of user groups including football, netball, tennis, cricket, scouts and community groups, such as ballroom dancing. Hamlyn Park also provides open space parkland and playground equipment for passive recreation opportunities.
