After hearing from the community earlier this year, Council has updated the West Footscray Community Facilities Plan to incorporate community feedback, ensuring that the facilities meet the needs and demands of our growing community.

The proposed West Footscray Community Facilities Plan will enable the redevelopment of RecWest Footscray, Shorten and Barrett Reserve, and Johnson Reserve.

The plan provides an overview of the proposed brand-new purpose-built facilities, as well as a variety of safe and accessible public open spaces for all ages, including a larger RecWest facility with new gymnasium, café, indoor stadium, meeting spaces, kitchen spaces and storage areas.

The proposed redevelopment also includes an increase in open space and playgrounds, a new community pavilion at Johnson Reserve, and better provision of car parking spaces.

The community is now invited to provide final feedback on the updated West Footscray Community Facilities Plan, to ensure these much-needed facilities improve community wellbeing and encourage healthy and active lifestyles for many years to come.

To view the plan and make a submission, visit by Monday 10 August.

Message from the Mayor, Cr Sarah Carter

Thank you to those who have shared their feedback on the West Footscray Community Facilities Plan with us. With your help, we have been able to refine the draft Plan, which will provide upgrades to RecWest Footscray, Shorten and Barrett Reserves, and Johnson Reserve.

We all know these are well-loved recreation spaces, and we know these new and improved facilities will help provide for our growing community. I encourage everyone to get involved in this final stage of community consultation.
