Johnstone Park


City of Greater Geelong


Geelong, Victoria

Spiire was engaged as part of the Central Geelong Action Plan to create designs to revitalise Johnstone Park in Geelong.

One of the key objectives of the project was to demonstrate the capacity to treat, harvest and reuse water within Johnstone Park, which has a long-standing association with water.  In response, we delivered a design that used water to activate the area.  The design referenced the journey of water to became one of the key themes of the park.

Spiire provided landscape architecture and integrated water services while our planning team led the stakeholder engagement process during the design consideration phase.

The stakeholder engagement process worked through a series of complex site issues including heritage considerations and conflicting objectives from the different park users.

The final design was used to assist the process to secure  future funding.

Spiire was engaged by the City of Greater Geelong, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) and Deakin University.
