Wangaratta Street Park

Wangaratta Street also hosts a small park, also called Stewart Street Reserve. It received a minor refresh in 2018, including a donated statue of Molly Meldrum. At the time, council ignored the opportunity to expand the size of the park by reallocating space away from the on-street parking found on all three sides of the park, despite suggestions from the community.

In 2021, Wangaratta St park is again being considered for an upgrade, this time as part of the Swan Street Streetscape Masterplan:
