Booking Information

Bookings essential. Please follow the latest government health guidelines regarding the COVID-19, including physical distancing and good hygiene. Hand sanitiser will be available. Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell.

You are invited you to join a community event to celebrate the opening of the Dwyer Road Reserve, Oaklands Park from 10am – 12 midday on Saturday, 28 November.

Member for Boothby Nicolle Flint MP will join Mayor Kris Hanna and unveil a plaque to acknowledge the completion of the reserve and smart precinct which seeks to improve access for residents and visitors to Oaklands Station and Marion’s retail and entertainment centre.

The “smart” precinct will include paths with sensor-activated lighting, shelters with solar panels to enable people to charge phones, and digital signs to direct drivers to vacant car parks.

The reserve is also being expanded to include a modern playground that includes an interactive climbing structure, slide, swings, nature play, and a 3-on-3 basketball and netball court. Sensors will record the popularity of equipment.

Additional improvements added include a digital information kiosk, extensive irrigated grass areas, pathways, trees, and landscaping.

There will also be complimentary refreshments.

This project represents the first stages of Council’s $5 million contribution towards the Oaklands Crossing, which aims to support economic revival by improving connections to local business. The Federal Government contributed $867,500 towards integration of smart technology solutions, from the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities Building Our Future Fund

Dwyer Road Reserve, Oaklands Park
