Works Underway on Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan
Works are now underway to improve pedestrian and cycling paths, car parking and landscaping at Mullum Mullum Reserve as part of the implementation of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan, endorsed by Council in 2014.
While a key recommendation of the management plan is the construction of the proposed five court multi-use stadium, it also identifies a range of other improvements within the reserve.
The management plan works that are currently underway include:
- Line marking of the lower car park
- Widening and upgrading the entrances at Springvale and Reynolds roads
- Minor road works, including the construction of a roundabout
- Construction of additional car spaces
- Installation of new, and upgrading existing, pedestrian paths, including an additional shared cycling and pedestrian path to connect with the Mullum Mullum Trail
- Landscaping works, including planting along the southern boundary and Springvale Road frontage
- Installation of prototype stormwater treatment rain gardens (a trial in collaboration with Melbourne Water)
- Upgrade of public lighting.
These management plan works are funded by Council and with grants from Melbourne Water and the Victorian Taxi Directorate.
The works have been designed to have as little impact as possible on visitors of the reserve.
These works are being undertaken ahead of the proposed construction of the stadium, and associated car park at the reserve later this year to reduce the impact on reserve users. During this construction there will still be minor impacts on access into and around the reserve and on the availability of car parking. Traffic management and signage will be put in place to inform reserve users of the changes.
These works will ensure that the reserve continues to provide opportunities for recreational use by the community.
