Robertson Park Development Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

One of the City’s most popular parks is in line for a major upgrade under a new development plan currently available for comment.

Robertson Park, on Fitzgerald Street next to the Robertson Park Tennis Club, has long been a valuable meeting place for both locals and the wider tennis community.

The draft development plan proposes a range of exciting additions to the park, including multi-sports courts, additional gardens and a new dog exercise area.

We want to know what you think of the draft development plan – what you like, what you think could be improved, and any great ideas you might have.

Included in the development plan are proposals to:

  • Introduce three multi-sports courts;
  • Reduce tennis courts from 36 to 20;
  • Upgrade the tennis courts to acrylic hard court surfaces;
  • Upgrade court lighting;
  • Upgrade Tennis Centre fencing and entrance;
  • Create a new community garden;
  • Create a new enclosed dog exercise area;
  • Create a new public open space turf area;
  • Upgrade the playground;
  • Build new public toilet facilities;
  • Replace the existing Wetland Heritage signage and install additional signage showing the history and heritage of the Tennis Centre; and
  • Extend the walking paths.

Robertson Park is a registered Aboriginal site and gathering place for the Noongar People. It is currently home to a tennis centre, wetlands, Lee Hops Cottage, Halvorsen Hall and an AIDS memorial.

In drafting the plan, the City worked closely with stakeholders including the Friends of Robertson Park and Tennis Central.
