New Cambridge Street Reserve playspace

Consultation closing on 04 February 2021

Council has received funding from the Victorian Government through the Local Parks, New Pocket Park Program to create a pocket playspace and upgrade the facilities at Cambridge Street Reserve, Oakleigh.

The Scout Hall at the site was demolished in 2019, increasing the amount of passive space in the reserve, as well as unlocking the space from the southern end.

We expect the Cambridge Street Reserve project to occur within the next two years. As a first step, we’d like to get the community’s ideas on what could be included in the new playspace and other ideas for improvements to the reserve.

These ideas will be used to develop a draft design, which we will then seek community feedback on. Please note that this is only a local park, with houses in close proximity along the eastern edge of the site. With this in mind, future design work will only consider ideas that are appropriate for a reserve of this size.

How can you give us your ideas?

  • By filling in an online survey (opens in new window)
  • By requesting that a hard copy survey be mailed to you. Please contact Kate Dunlop (as per contact details below).

We would like everyone's ideas by Thursday 4 February 2021.

If you would like to discuss this matter, please contact:

We look forward to making a playspace that is interesting and fun for local children, as well as investing in other features at the reserve to make it more welcoming and accessible for residents.
