The Lakes Reserve

The Lakes Reserve

The Lakes Reserve is undergoing a $3.34 million dollar transformation

Council has funded $2.13 million for these works through its 2018/2019 Capital Works Budget. Council has allocated an additional $960,000 for this project in 2019/2020, subject to Budget approval. The Victorian Government has contributed $250,000 through Sports and Recreation Victoria’s ‘Community Sports Infrastructure Fund’.

Temporary closure

While work is underway, the playground and picnic areas will be closed and path access may be restricted, however public toilets will be accessible through most of the construction period. The park is expected to reopen in spring 2019 (weather depending).

Current facilities

The main playground structure at the Lakes Reserve District Park is shaped like a fish and offers great play opportunities for all kids - and even parents!

The park also has two shelters, a barbecue, two jetties extending over the lake, picnic tables, new paths and many trees. 

The Lakes Reserve is one of five flagship parks of our much improved park network, and is a key milestone in the implementation of Creating Better Parks.

The Lakes Reserve is a great place to have a family or group picnic. You can get there by bicycle along the Taylors Creek Recreational Trail.
