Citizens Park

Citizens ParkHighett Street (between Church and Gleadell Streets), Richmond 3121
Melway ref: 2H, B5

Citizen's Park is Richmond's largest park. Close proximity to public transport and plenty of open space make it a great inner-city getaway.

Extended lighting for park users during non-daylight savings months

In June 2012, Council approved a 12-month trial to operate one of the oval's large sports lights until 9pm on weekdays throughout non-daylight savings months.
The trial will be reviewed after 12 months, at which time officers will also determine whether the extended lighting hours should be introduced on weekends too.
