Project Update October 2023

The City of Greater Geelong will deliver new facilities on the St. Leonards foreshore with the help of funding from the Federal Government.

Construction will begin in November on a new open-sided shelter with accessible BBQ, accessible picnic seating, two cold water outdoor showers, two open air changerooms, new concrete path and landscaping and works are expected to be complete by February 2024.

The local community will be kept informed during the works about any impacts on public access.

A public toilet and connecting sewerage initially proposed as part of the project have been removed due to cost escalations.

There are existing public toilets located less than 100 metres away in Murradoc Road and around 300 metres to the south beside the tennis courts.

A space has been left for the proposed public toilet should the City receive funding to deliver it in the future.

Project Update February 2023

We are in the detailed design phase of the project in February / March 2023.

Anticipated tender of project is April / May 2023.


The City is pleased to present plans for a new open sided foreshore shelter with barbecues, seating, toilets, change facilities and cold water outdoor showers for the foreshore in St. Leonards next to Harvey Park.

The project will be funded from a federal election commitment. We have been working with key stakeholders St Leonards Beautification Committee, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Bellarine Bayside Coastal Management to develop the draft concept.

We're now seeking feedback from nearby residents and users of the reserve.

Please review the plans below and tell us what you think using the quick polls and feedback form.
