Police Point Shire Park is a beautiful heritage property in Portsea, sitting at the entrance to the Point Nepean National Park.
A site of national heritage significance, we have proudly managed Police Point Shire Park for almost 20 years. Back in 2019 we identified a need to review this site and its current uses, identifying opportunities to expand the experiences the community could enjoy.
We want to hear your thoughts on how we can improve this site. Until Saturday 29 April 2023, you can share your feedback via a survey. Community engagement will also be sought in-person at the following locations:

  • Police Point Shire Park, Saturday 1 April, 8-11am
  • Ocean Beach Rd (Near Information Centre), Sorento, Thursday 6 April, 11am-1pm
  • Police Point Shire Park, Saturday 15 April, 8-11am

How do you think we can make this beautiful site a more enjoyable space for our whole community?

Do you want to see more social and activity spaces?

Are there improvements that could be made to the existing infrastructure or facilities?
