Oaklands Recreation Plaza and Reserve

Consultation has concluded

Oaklands Recreation Plaza and Reserve

The development of a Recreation Plaza and upgrade of Oaklands Estate Reserve has been identified in the 2012 master plan for the site, which incorporates a wetland, play space, biodiversity corridor and recreation plaza.

The site is located at 257-265 Oaklands Road, Oaklands Park, and incorporates the Oaklands Estate Reserve, and former Driver Training Centre Site.

Consultation is now open for the Oaklands Reserve Inclusive Play Space!


Reserve upgrade - project introduction

A master plan was prepared for Oaklands Wetland and Reserve in 2012 and is being implemented in stages. Council is progressing the design of the inclusive play space and reserve development (outlined in orange below), and seeks your ideas to shape the design.

The ‘inclusive’ playground at Oaklands Reserve will cater for all of the community including children with special needs such as mobility, vision and hearing impairments as well as spectrum disorders such as autism.

Marion Council and the Touched by Olivia Foundation are working together to build a unique playground at Oaklands Park for children of all ages and abilities.

The Perkins family founded the charity in 2006 following the loss of their baby daughter Olivia to a rare disease. It aims to bring together communities, government and corporate Australia to create healthier and happier lives for children by building inclusive playgrounds.

Both the foundation and the council share a belief that every person has the right to be part of their community. More information on the foundation is available at www.touchedbyolivia.com.au.

In addition to the inclusive play space, Marion Council is also planning for the upgrade of the existing reserve, including the biodiversity corridor, landscaping, pathway connections, Japanese garden, vineyard, while considering the existing duck pond.
