Woodforde Family Reserve in Park Holme is a local playground that was upgraded in August 2018 as part of the sports facilities upgrade.

The playground is partially fenced and features a multistation with climbing net, slide, spiral fireman's pole, tunnel and bridge - underneath there's a counter for kids to use their imagination.

Swing or spring on the swings (standard and baby) or springers (frog and sheep).

Ample seating is provided in the playground and through the reserve with the picnic table providing a good view of the playground and western side of the courts.

At the other eastern end of the reserve there is a perfect tree to for kids to sit and watch the games from.

Sports facilities upgrade

The sporting facilities and playground at Woodforde Family Reserve was upgraded in 2018.

Find out more about the upgrade...

The upgrade included:

  • New LED lighting which reduce carbon emissions, have a longer life-span, lower maintenance costs and reduced light-spill for nearby residents ($140,000).
  • New playground with seating and picnic table within sight of the courts ($90,000).
  • Increase of the court footprint which has enabled netball to now be included at this site (from 6 tennis-only courts to 4 multi-use courts) ($80,000).
  • Upgraded clubrooms with internal/external painting, new guttering, rewiring, air-conditioning and blinds ($90,000).
  • New fences to accommodate the larger court footprint ($68,000).
  • Other works included court resurfacing and new line-marking for the courts to enable more versatile use.

A disability access toilet will be added in the future ($90,000).

The final concept plans are available to view below.

Sports Clubs

Woodforde Family Reserve is the home of two sports clubs.

Recognising the Woodforde family

On 28 August 2001 Council resolved to change the name of South Park Holme Reserve to Woodforde Family Reserve as part of the Community Awards Programme (GC280801R101).

One of Marion Council’s most significant contributors is the Woodforde family, who were long-serving members of the South Park Holme Tennis Club.
