Dennis Reserve Master Plan
Dennis Reserve is a popular park in central Williamstown. It is home to the Williamstown Central Tennis Club, Williamstown Bowling Club and Williamstown Senior Citizens Building where a range of community groups participate in activities and events. The reserve contains heritage features, a much loved play space, established trees and gardens.
Dennis Reserve is an important reserve for the local community as it provides a key connection between the Williamstown Activity Centre, local residential areas and other public facilities as well as a diverse range of active and passive recreation opportunities.
In 2015, Council established a Community Working Group to assist in the development of a draft Master Plan. The Master Plan will guide the future use and development of the reserve. The working group includes representatives from each of the groups that either currently use or would like to use the reserve, as well as representatives from the broader community.
In early 2016, a survey was conducted that asked interested community members about their current and future use of the reserve and the results of the survey were used to inform the development of the Master Plan options.
The draft Master Plan has been developed through many conversations with our community. Its key features include:
- the reconfiguration of existing courts to accommodate four tennis courts
- improvements to open space areas
- a rebuild of the multipurpose community building that will be home to a number of community groups including Williamstown Senior Citizens and Williamstown Central Tennis Club
Feedback on the draft Master Plan has now concluded.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. Submissions will be considered by the project team in the preparation of the Master Plan. The Project team will report back on key outcomes which will then be presented to Council.
