Consultation has concluded
In December 2015, the Brooklyn Reserve community was awarded $200,000 from the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to improve the conditions and the facilities at Brooklyn Reserve.
As a part of the EPA agreement Council has also committed $200,000 funding to implement the draft Brooklyn Reserve Masterplan.
Thank to all that got involved in our initial consultation. We received valuable information in the form of completed survey responses and the conversations at the drop in session.

Construction is underway!
Construction of the playground is underway and progressing well. Recently completed works include installation of some key play equipment items, sculptures and new concrete pathways. Over the coming weeks, remaining equipment installation, rubber under surfacing, garden beds and tree planting will be installed.
Works are anticipated to be complete in late August to allow time for planting establishment and wet weather days. Council thanks you for your patience.
Check out the concept plan
The period for comment has now closed but you are still invited to view the Brooklyn Reserve concept plan.
The concept plan has been informed by community consultation that took place between July and August 2016. Earlier this year, the car park was upgraded and a perimeter concrete pathway was installed. The intent of the improvement works is to cater for a diverse range of users and will provide spaces for both structured and unstructured play, physical fitness, walking, running, quiet contemplation, picnicking, gathering spaces and space for kicking a ball.
The proposed improvements feature a 6m high climbing structure, outdoor fitness stations, musical instruments, a story telling area, trees and shrub planting, a smaller circuit path for kids to ride their bikes and scooters, a multi-purpose goal, bins and a drink fountain. The works also include retaining and improving the popular features you know and love, such as the half court and barbecue and picnic area.
