Dick Murdoch Reserve

Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey, attended our park drop-in session or contacted the project team directly to provide feedback for the upgrades of Dick Murdoch Reserve.

What’s included in this park upgrade?

A concept design for the upgrade of this park has been finalised based on what we heard from the community during the Better Places Laverton process and community feedback shared on the draft concept design in November and December 2020.

The park will consist of a new playground including a see-saw, toddler scrambling area, and a tower with a slide and basket swing. More seating spaces are also included in the upgrade with a drinking fountain and an open lawn catering for tod­dlers to teenagers. The highlight of the space is a 40m-long flying fox at the Cole Street end. Some meadow grassland gar­den beds have also been proposed to reflect the indigenous landscape of the Western Plains of Melbourne.
