Aldershot Reserve is a large local park in St Albans Park. It currently has a shelter, BBQ, play equipment and basketball half court. We worked with the community to develop a new plan for this reserve that will better meet the needs of local residents. The masterplan was endorsed by Council in March 2021.


  • Stage 1 - Fenced Dog Park

    Funding has been allocated to deliver the fenced dog park within Aldershot Reserve.
    We are undertaking detailed design of the dog park and anticipate construction will begin mid-2022.

  • Future Stages

    The City will continue to seek funding for delivery of future stages of the masterplan.


We undertook two stages of community consultation during the design process.

  • In the first stage we gathered information from the community to assist with the preparation of a draft Concept Plan for Aldershot Reserve, St Albans Park. The initial feedback from the community was used to develop a concept design.
  • In the second stage of consultation the Concept Plan was shared with the community for feedback. 95% of respondents supported the plan.

The plan and supporting report was finalised and then endorsed by Council at the meeting held on 23 March 2021.
