Alison Hartman Gardens

Alison Hartman Gardens was an important but underutilised community space in the heart of Albany’s city centre. The gardens contain considerable cultural and historical value, located on York Street between the historic education site and  student accommodation development with connections to the Visitor Centre and Public Library.

The enhancement of the gardens play a vital role in creating a vibrant social hub, a welcoming atmosphere that will appeal to all ages, a place for visitors to unwind and connect, and an improved space for families and community events.
