Project Updates

Works on the neighbouring Bayside Secondary College are now complete. This upgrade included multipurpose sportsground, floodlights and a new pavilion.

In 2020, Council undertook road works in Blenheim Road between Rosshire Road and Woods Street. These works included road resurfacing and the construction of additional off street parking. The additional parking supports parking demand generated by the Australian Islamic Centre (AIC) and use of adjacent sportsground site. An overflow carpark at Ross Road Reserve has also been made available to AIC for use during peak periods. The overflow car park is a locked compound at all times, except for the period when it is in use.

Nearby parks with dog off-leash areas include Newport Lakes and S.J Clement Reserve. Each park in the neighbourhood serves a unique function. In keeping with the enjoyment theme of this new park in Blenheim Road, a dog off leash area in this location is not considered appropriate.

Work has begun on the brand new park at 29-31 Blenheim Road. The reserve will provide a place for passive recreation, as well as a space for the community to meet their neighbours, have a picnic, take a walk or enjoy some quiet contemplation.

The construction works are expected to conclude in June 2022. The fence will remain in place for a further 8 week period to allow time for grass establishment. The reserve is expected to be formally opened to the public in August 2022.

The works will include:

  • 2 metre wide circuit path
  • central grass area
  • picnic shelter with seating and barbecue
  • play equipment, such as trampoline, sand digger, sculptural items, a sand pit and nature play area
  • toilet block and drink fountain
  • seats, bike rails and rubbish bins
  • meditative space and herb garden
  • a forest walk, lined with trees
  • trees, shrubs and groundcover plantings

Civil works including all earthworks, paths and structures are currently underway. The landscape works including tree planting, garden beds and lawn installation will occur in Autumn 2022.
