Oaklands Estate Reserve (southern end of Oaklands Reserve) will be a regional playground that will incorporate additional recreation facilities, play opportunities, pathway connections, picnic facilities and landscaping across the site.

The works will occur over two stages to enable parts of the reserve to remain open during the construction (areas under construction will be closed off).

Design work was undertaken through 2017/2018, with construction planned for 2018/2019.
