The City of Greater Geelong is inviting 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.
