Greaves Reserve

Greaves Reserve Upgrade

The Greaves Reserve Master Plan was adopted by Council on 13 November 2023. It was developed after extensive community and stakeholder consultation.

The master plan establishes the long-term vision and direction for this highly valued and well utilised regional park in Dandenong. It will enable the transformation of this park as a destination for active and passive recreational pursuits and community events.

The upgrade of the internal road network will improve circulation. The provision of new parking precincts that service the activity precincts will cater to sports, community uses and events.

The master plan integrates and connects the park facilities to create a diverse and walkable environment for the community to enjoy. The plan strengthens and supports the continued facilitation of sport at Greaves Reserve, particularly with the upgraded netball court precinct and the new centrally located Monahan Sports Pavilion building.

A more diverse informal recreation precinct will support the community’s access to quality open space and recreational opportunities such as:

  • upgraded neighbourhood level playground
  • fitness equipment
  • multi-use court facilities
  • picnic and BBQ facilities
  • path networks and other improved park infrastructure. 

The planting of trees across the reserve will increase the urban forest canopy to provide shade and will enhance the biodiversity and environmental benefits for the community.

The master plan has considered the long-term future of the reserve by ensuring that the sporting infrastructure caters for existing and future trends in sport and recreation.

The Implementation Plan identifies short, medium and long-term projects and provides guidance on the design and construction sequence necessary to implement the master plan.
