Central Reserve Master Plan

The City of Monash is one of Melbourne’s most populous municipalities, with approximately 176,000 residents. The City has approximately 120 passive and active reserves currently used for activities such as walking, jogging, cycling, cricket, football, soccer, bocce, croquet, archery, baseball, athletics, fitness training, dog obedience training, school sport and informal social activities. Monash City Council identified the need to develop an Active Reserves Strategy to guide the future provision of sport and sporting facility development within the muncipality. Stage 1 (completed in June 2010) of the Strategy examined sporting fields and addressed issues in relation to carrying capacity and facility development. It highlighted the need to commence the development of master plans at key reserves, such as Central Reserve, that have at least four different sporting facilities. Council engaged the specialist services of ASR Research and Convic to assist with the community consultation and facility assessment. The development of the Master Plan involved a consultative methodology that provided key stakeholders including residents, tenant clubs and community groups, with an opportunity to contribute to the plan through workshops, meetings, online and written submissions. Central Reserve is a suburban recreation reserve situated at the intersection of Waverley Road and Springvale Road, Glen Waverley. The reserve currently provides a range of facilities including a skate park, accessible playground, two sports ovals and associated pavilions, cricket nets, athletics track, bowling club, community centre, toilets and a picnic/bbq area. The consultation and surveys highlighted a number of key themes and issues.
