Project update - 11 November 2022

Consultation on this project has closed. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

As part of Council’s ongoing implementation of Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan, Station Waters Reserve, Cairnlea is being reviewed for a Suburban Park upgrade.

We are seeking your feedback to enable a re-design for this reserve to improve recreation and play for the community.

Proposed works will follow in a future financial year subject to Council budget approvals.

The park currently has a playground, shelters, barbecues, seats, picnic settings, interpretive signage, boardwalks and a circuit path. The playground was recently upgraded however some of the other features need updating or renewing as they are more than 12 years old.

Tell us what you think about the current park, which facilities should be retained or upgraded and what can we do to make the park a better place for you to visit and use.

What Station Waters Reserve looks like now

Suburban Park definition

A well developed park within walking distance from every household with one generally within every suburb.

The parks will be predominantly used by residents who live within a 20 minute walk from it. Most visitors will spend up to an hour in the park, although occasionally some may stay several hours using picnic facilities.

Suburban Park locations were selected to ensure a generally even distribution across the Municipality so that most residents would be within approximately one kilometre of these parks. At least one Suburban Park is located in most Brimbank suburbs. Parks were selected that could accommodate the proposed infrastructure such as playgrounds and picnic area.

Facilities will include:

  • a good quality playground
  • facilities for teenage play
  • picnic facilities, shelters and barbeques in most
  • substantial tree plantings, irrigated garden beds and a high quality grass area

Approximate service radius: 1 kilometre
Approximate size: 0.6 – 1.0 hectares
