Aldershot Reserve is a large local park in St Albans Park. It currently has a shelter, BBQ, play equipment and basketball half court. We're working with the community to re-design this reserve to better meet the needs of local residents.


We prepared a draft Concept Plan for Aldershot Reserve, St Albans Park. The design was developed by an external consultant team and is based on:

  • Feedback from the community;
    • Feedback was sought at the end of 2019 through a postcard mail-out, two on-site engagement events and an online survey. A number of written submissions were also received. Overall, more than 250 people participated in the consultation.
  • A commissioned report by an expert in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED);
  • Input from relevant City of Greater Geelong departments;
  • A presentation to the City of Greater Geelong Youth Council

A feedback survey on the Concept Plan was open for community comments from 21 May to 9 June 2020. Hard copies were also distributed to homes within 400m of the reserve. Consultation closed on Tuesday 9 June with additional time allowed for postal surveys to be returned. A total of 342 surveys were completed, including 99 online surveys and 243 hard copy surveys. An additional 31 comments were added to the Social Map below.
