Belvoir and Willow Parks Master Plan


A new master plan is needed to guide the future planning for two of Wodonga’s much-loved open spaces – Willow and
Belvoir parks.

The existing master plans were created 10 years ago.

Since then, Wodonga has seen significant population growth and both parks have experienced many environmental and infrastructure changes and inclusions.

Earlier this year, in February, council and consultants ROSS Planning heard from local sporting clubs, schools and community stakeholder groups, park users and the wider community through workshops and drop in sessions in the parks.

Feedback received from community members has informed the Draft Belvoir and Willow Park Master Plan.

At its June meeting, council endorsed the Draft Belvoir and Willow Park Master Plan to go on public exhibition for community members to have their say.

Improvements proposed in the master plan are not significant and are designed to enhance existing features and improve connectivity while maintaining the natural environment of the parks.

Belvoir Park

The master plan’s vision for Belvoir Park is to further establish the site as an area for recreation pursuits and passive experiences within an attractive and natural environment.

The master plan includes:

  • Construct a boardwalk along the north-western edge of the north western lagoon, connecting to existing pathways;
  • Consider the future acquisition of the large parcel of privately owned land in the south-western aspect of the site; and
  • Upgrade/slightly increase number of fitness stations throughout site
  • Increased car parking opportunities


Willow Park

The master plan’s vision for Willow Park is to balance quiet natural areas with inviting play and picnic elements, ensuring that the park is attractive to a wide array of users. And to ensure sporting activities are appropriately provided for without negatively impacting on other users.

The master plan includes:

  • Extension of the pavilion with an appropriate design to include female change rooms and increased storage;
  • Upgrade the existing playground equipment and provide at least partial shading with sails consistent with those existing within the site;
  • Develop further features between the skate park and proposed nature play area that may include a learn to ride track and a combined rebound/bouldering wall (that could also include a public cricket practice net in its final design); and,
  • Develop a bush tucker garden in the south-eastern corner of the wetlands area
