Williamstown Botanic Gardens Master Plan
The Williamstown Botanic Gardens Master Plan was adopted at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 14 August 2018.
The master plan was on public exhibition for eight weeks, from 19 March 2018 to 11 May 2018.
Council developed the master plan in collaboration with the Williamstown Botanic Gardens Advisory Group, the Friends of Williamstown Botanic Gardens and Heritage Victoria to guide the development of the gardens in future years.
The original Conservation Management Master Plan for the gardens was created in 2001, which included the restoration of the historic pond, restoration of the Clark statue and reinstatement of the original circular paths.
The endorsed Williamstown Botanic Gardens Master Plan includes the entire 4.04ha area of the gardens, including the traditional northern gardens and the Pinetum (also known as LA Parker Reserve) to the south.
The master plan will enhance the already strong character of the gardens by improving planting, introducing new garden beds, upgrading the presentation to the surrounding streets and updating the existing irrigation system.
The Williamstown Botanic Gardens are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register as being ‘of historical, aesthetic, scientific (horticultural) and social significance to the state of Victoria’.
