Frederick Wachter Reserve Playground Upgrade

We are designing a new district level playground at Frederick Wachter Reserve in Keysborough.

Frederick Wachter Reserve is a large district multi-purpose park located on Kingsclere Avenue in Keysborough. The reserve is located directly north of Parkmore Shopping Centre. The park has two sports grounds, three lanes of cricket nets, eight tennis courts, a wetland area, a neighbourhood level playground with a picnic shelter and BBQ area, a dog off-leash area and extensive open space.

The Frederick Wachter Reserve Master Plan was developed after extensive community and stakeholder consultation and was adopted by Council in February 2019. The masterplan’s implementation strategy identifies the upgrade of the existing neighbourhood level playground to a district level to provide more diverse play environment suitable for broader age groups. The district playground will be located near the existing playground at the southern end of the park on Kingsclere Avenue.
