The City of Greater
Geelong is seeking community feedback to help shape a shared vision for Myers
Reserve in Bell Post Hill through a new Master Plan.
said the new draft Master Plan will establish the vision, goals and
recommendations to guide the future infrastructure developments of the reserve.
Myers Reserve is a key asset within the northern suburbs sport and recreation network that is highly utilised. The reserve is close to capacity and is in need of a long-term plan to meet current and future sporting and recreation needs.
In developing the Master Plan, the City will consider current and future population demands, the fit-for-purpose condition of facilities, and the exponential growth in female sports participation.
The reserve has a large range of user groups including bowls, cricket, football, netball, soccer, and community groups.
The reserve is close to Covenant College and provides open space parkland for recreation opportunities for residents.
The Master Plan will provide the City with a strategic document to advocate for State and Federal Government funding to help implement the vision for the reserve.
The City is taking feedback via the Have Your Say page until 5.00pm Sunday 13 March 2022.

We want to refresh
the 2005 Myers Reserve Landscape Master Plan and provide a contemporary vision
for the Reserve for the next 10 years. Your feedback will
help us make sure Myers Reserve remains a welcoming place that meets the needs
of the local community. The Master Plan will aim to protect and celebrate the reserve’s
cultural, recreational and heritage values, while improving and protecting it
for future generations. The reserve is a vital public meeting place, treasured
by so many. We are keen to hear what the community thinks about how it is used.
