Things to do
Children will enjoy the new local level playground at Hallett Cove Reserve with everything, including the kitchen sink. Brooklyn Drive Reserve features a playable kitchen sink and a custom teepee style play structure with a cargo net ramp and a slide. Older children can test their agility on the spin and monkey bars or play ‘capture the flag’ with their friends.
More traditional play elements include a standard and baby swing and junior scooter/bike track looping around the perimeter of the reserve. Additional amenities include a drinking fountain, bench seating, and nature play balance logs. This playground is a welcome addition to a site that previously contained shade and a picnic table. New plants were added in April 2021 to enhance the look and feel of the reserve.
The upgraded playground and reserve were completed in February 2021.
Brooklyn Drive Reserve in Hallett Cove was completed in December 2018 (without the playground).
The reserve featured a sheltered picnic table and bench seat with stunning views across the gully.
At the 27 March 2018 General Council meeting, Council endorsed GC180327R09 Playground Works Program which allocated funding to develop a playground at Brooklyn Drive Reserve.
The playground addition and reserve upgrade were completed in February 2021.
