Madison Reserve

Madison Reserve Upgrade

Madison Reserve

Council sought feedback from the community which helped shape the final design for Madison Reserve at 21-31 Madison Avenue, Dandenong North.

There was strong support to increase the activities within the reserve and to enhance the landscaping.

The concept plan is aligned with:

  • the allocated budget for 2023-2024 financial year
  • the staging plan that will inform future capital improvement works bids to Council
  • a Neighbourhood level park; see section Appendix B: Park Development Standards of the Greater Dandenong Open Space Strategy 2020-2030.

The upgrade of the Local level playground is not part of this project’s scope of works.

The key elements of the concept plan and the implementation of project works are:

Stage 1 works 2023-24

  • new half basketball court with an acrylic surface, basketball/soccer goal, fencing, drainage and a concrete path     
  • shelter with a picnic table setting.

Future stages – subject to funding

The following projects are subject to future capital improvement bids being supported through council’s annual budget process:

  • BBQ
  • drinking fountain 
  • gravel access paths from Blackmore Street and Madison Avenue  
  • 3 or 4 piece fitness pod
  • additional seats and picnic table setting
  • new trees 
  • garden beds with indigenous species.
