A history of Parks and Reserves
within Hobsons Bay

Hobsons Bay has an extensive network of parks and reserves that are highly valued by the community and visitors alike. The naming of parks, reserves and sport facilities provides an opportunity to honour individuals and groups for contributions and achievements that deserve recognition.  It also presents an opportunity to emphasise important landmarks, geographical features or history that may be more relevant.

The naming of parks, reserves and sport facilities may arise either at the instigation of Council, or the community, for existing unnamed parks, reserves or sport facilities or as a result of a new park, reserve or sport facility being constructed as part of Council works or residential development.

The pages, within this section, provide a short background and history of a number of the parks, reserves and sports grounds within Altona and surrounding suburbs.
