Playground upgrade update

The Stanley Street Reserve Upgrade concept has now been finalised.

As part of the consultation process, Marion Council received a petition and deputation to include a 3 on 3 basketball court at the reserve. Council also received a deputation against the installation of the 3 on 3 basketball court.

The petition and both deputations were considered at the 24 November 2020 General Council Meeting. The endorsed resolution was for Council to “investigate a more suitable site for a new 3v3 basketball court within 1000 metres of Stanley Street Reserve with funding allocated through the savings identified from the Stanley Street Reserve Upgrade Budget”.

It is anticipated that construction of the Stanley Street Reserve upgrade will commence in early 2021 with works complete by June 2021.


Playground upgrade

Stanley Street Reserve in Glengowrie is a neighbourhood playground with tennis courts leased by Stanley Street Tennis Club.

A new playground and upgraded open space will be delivered for Stanley Street Reserve, Glengowrie under the Playground Framework.

A concept plan was developed and community consultation on this design closed in May this year.

Resident feedback has been collated and, where possible, incorporated into the final design. Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2021.
