In May 2022, we asked for feedback on the upgrade of Odessa Avenue Reserve, Keilor Downs.

We did this through onsite in-person consultation, a letterbox drop and online. We learned:

  • how you use the park
  • your priorities
  • features and elements you’d like included in the upgrade.

What's in the draft concept plan

More efficient pedestrian access and circulation network. Paths replaced with a circuit path accessible from all entrances and to all amenities.

A fitness station along the circuit path.

Existing playground replaced with new playground facilities which include:

  • a multi-play unit
  • swing sets
  • nature play elements
  • a flying fox.

A shelter structure with:

  • picnic setting
  • BBQ unit
  • drinking water fountain
  • bicycle stands.

A dry creek bed is proposed, subject to project savings, to direct the overland run-off to the lower area of site to create a raingarden. Existing feature boulders will be re-used at the creek if it gets constructed.

Select trees will be removed to create an uninterrupted central grassed kick-about space.

Garden beds in and around the play area and trees along the periphery of the reserve. As well as the planting at the dry creek, if it gets constructed).

A new park sign at the Morcambe Crescent entrance.

Bins at the entrances.
