Williams Reserve

Christie barbecues are an integral part of the Australian outdoor culture and landscape. Browse a selection of projects including parks, rooftop gardens, playgrounds, hospitals, resorts, and retirement facilities, for your inspiration.

Williams Reserve is located on bustling Victoria Street, in the multi-story inner-city Melbourne suburb of Richmond. This much loved and well used urban park is frequented by residents and local workers alike.  To meet the ever-changing needs of this multicultural community, City of Yarra commissioned Hansen Partnership to lead a consultative re-development of the reserve. Hansen’s vision for the space has been translated into  a recreation landscape that highlights the park’s significant historical markers, while bringing to life a thoroughly modern, urban destination. The contemporary urban oasis boasts curvilinear paths, retained mature trees, and paving features that resonates with the nearby ‘bar-code’ retail culture.  New park amenities include a children’s playground and social seating as well as uber-modern picnic settings, complemented by an A Series Christie wheelchair accessible public barbecue.  The smart urban redesign provides the community with a disability-accessible inner-city backyard in which to relax, socialise and play.
