North Park Reserve is located in Lamont Street Stawell, in the Northern Grampians Shire. Situated on Crown Land, the site features a number of sport and recreation facilities suitable for football, cricket, netball, soccer, tennis, fire brigade training and athletics. There are also three pavilions on site; a new multi-purpose clubroom that is used primarily by football, netball, and cricket clubs, and a clubroom used by Stawell Amateur Athletics Club.
In 2011, council endorsed the North Park Multi-Purpose Precinct Development Plan outlining a future for North Park as a 'vibrant community hub which provides physical, social, economic, and environmental benefits to the Stawell community.'
Northern Grampians Shire Council has been successful in implementing several recommendations from the previous plan but has since identified the need to take a fresh look at North Park. The new future-ready plan will take into consideration those challenges that were not yet foreseeable at the time of the previous plan’s development.
The purpose of the master plan is to provide an understanding of any current and potential future site usage, and enable council to consult, plan and design in a structured and informed manner. This plan:
• Identifies active and passive opportunities, including those linked to Central Park and Cato Park.
• Identifies existing and future capability and design options to ensure sustainable recreation provision.
• Supports investment at North Park to transform current siloed infrastructure into an integrated and well-connected precinct for active and passive recreation.
The North Park Master plan was adopted by Council on 5 December 2022. The full version of the master plan can be accessed to the right-hand side of this page.
