Exciting future for Kelynack rec reserve

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

Upgrades to the sports and a multi-play area along with a new family friendly pavilion are some of the future improvements earmarked for Kelynack Recreation Reserve in Mill Park.

Council has endorsed a masterplan for the 5.7-hectare reserve that will see it transformed into a key sports and open space reserve for the local community.

Administrator The Hon Bruce Billson said the masterplan ensured future upgrades and improvements could be planned well in advance so the reserve could continue to support the local growing community.

“We spoke with local residents and clubs who told us they wanted to see improved access and safety, changes to the landscaping and connection to the nearby Plenty Gorge Parklands,” Mr Billson said.

“Beyond the ‘active’ sports facility improvements, local families will really enjoy the improved playgrounds, passive recreation enhancements and upgrades to community-use facilities.

“We want this reserve to continue to be a sporting and recreation reserve for the community to enjoy and to encourage participation in sports at a local level for the community.”

Highlights of the master plan include:

  • upgrades to the sports oval
  • an upgrade and relocation of the play space, picnic area and fitness station
  • construction of a new female friendly sports pavilion
  • creation of a new multi-play area and picnic area.

 The masterplan enables works to be funded over multiple of years through Council’s annual budget process.
