Laverton parks to get a green facelift


Eight parks in Laverton are set for a facelift as Hobsons Bay City Council rolls out the Love Laverton Parks project and invites the community to have its say on each park’s design.

The parks were identified after extensive community consultation through the Better Places Laverton project, which outlined a key initiative to make Laverton ‘Greener and Cleaner’.

Upgrades to the eight local parks will be fast-tracked with the first three parks set for improvement being Frank Gibson Reserve, Dick Murdoch Reserve and Whittaker Avenue Reserve.

The upgrades will focus on:

  • creating a unique feel to each of Laverton’s parks that offer a variety of activities for people of all ages and abilities
  • upgrading and improving existing facilities and equipment
  • adding new landscaping and tree planting that will enhance the green character of Laverton
  • improving pedestrian and cyclist pathway connections, to increase accessibility and help to tie the parks together into a network

Now is the time to have your say, we want to hear about your favourite parks and how you’d like them to look. As a starting point, we’re now seeking community input for the concept designs which have been developed for these three parks.

All residents and guests are invited to view the plans at to ensure we have captured the community’s vision for the park and complete the relevant feedback form for each of the parks. Feedback closes at midnight on Wednesday 23 December.
