Marara Road Reserve enhances open space for our community

One of our priorities at Glen Eira City Council is to provide adequate outdoor space for current and future generations of our community.

Council’s Open Space Strategy, implemented in 2014, recommended landscape inclusion and enhancement in many open areas including Marara Road Reserve in Caulfield South.

Stage one of the Reserve upgrade, at the western end between Curraweena and Narrawong Roads, was completed in the 2015–16 financial year and began the process to enhance the Reserve as a more inviting and attractive open space.

The works have created an ideal location for community social gatherings with canopy trees and garden beds which are user-friendly with entries highlighted and pathways realigned to improve movement and safety.

We know this open space will continue to be a much loved location for both regular users and newcomers into the future and stage two will only add to its appeal as a place for the community to meet, play and relax.

Stage two, along the Reserve between Narrawong and Booran Roads, is currently underway and should near completion by July 2017.

The continuation of these improvement works will see the installation of new seating and picnic areas, fitness stations and additional trees and shrub plantings to reinforce the natural character of the Reserve.
