Bonette Reserve is home to the Beaconsfield War Memorial. it is located at the intersection of Wood Street and (old) Princess Highway, Beaconsfield.

The Beaconsfield Structure Plan guides the growth and development of Beaconsfield, set out the upgrades to the area around the War Memorial on the corner of Woods Street and (old) Princes Highway. The Historic Memorial and the reserve are considered by the structure plan to represent an important Civic node for the town of Beaconsfield.

Project description

Council is committed to designing a landscape upgrade to Bonette Reserve in Beaconsfield, in consultation with the community.

Works will include:

  • Pavement works around the memorial.
  • Footpath upgrades
  • Accessible pedestrian crossing
  • Replacement of flagpoles
  • Accessible parking
  • Seating
  • Garden beds and landscaping
  • Drainage improvement works

We are working to deliver these upgrades as quickly as possible, to ensure the space can be used for important community events such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.

Unfortunately, due to material delays with the seating, the memorial is expected to be 90% completed by Anzac Day 2024 (April 2024).

To ensure that this important service can continue with minimal interruptions, Council will clean the site and temporarily remove any construction fencing so community members can access the memorial on Anzac Day.

Formal seating will be installed at the reserve once available.
