East Burwood Reserve Masterplan

What are your ideas for the future of East Burwood Reserve?

Located on Burwood Highway near Springvale Road, the reserve is an expansive 40-acre site with major sporting and recreation facilities.

We are preparing a Masterplan to guide future use of the site for the next 15 years to meet the needs of our changing and growing community.

Your feedback will help inform the development of the Masterplan, which will aim to maximise use of the site for sporting and community groups as well as the wider community.

There are three ways you can have your say:

Submissions close on 7 August 2022.

The Reserve:

East Burwood Reserve is classified as Municipal Open Space in the Whitehorse Open Space Strategy (2007) and is 40-acre in area. It is part of the Tally Ho Major Activity Centre Study Area, with Tally Ho Business Park to the east and The Peter James Centre to the north across Burwood Highway. Significant sports and recreation facilities are located here, including two ovals, an athletics track, indoor basketball stadium, velodrome, tennis courts, a number of club buildings and pavilions, heritage hall, significant car parking areas, two small playgrounds and areas of public open space.

Open Space Planning Context:

Municipal Open Space caters primarily to residents of Whitehorse but also provides facilities which are used by residents from other municipalities. Municipal reserves may also have a role in nature conservation including protecting and improving biodiversity values. Generally, these reserves are large enough in area to provide for a range of activities or adequate preservation of biodiversity values and include the major sporting and bushland reserves in the Municipality. Other examples of Municipal open space in Whitehorse include Surrey Park in Box Hill, Elgar Park in Mont Albert North and Bellbird Dell Reserve in Vermont South.
