Exciting news! We’re improving Pine Reserve in Aberfoyle Park.

Pine Reserve on Pine Drive in Aberfoyle Park has been identified for an upgrade.

A concept design has been developed for improvements to this reserve that look to retain the unique appeal Pine Reserve currently boasts. It incorporates various play elements such as giant swings, cableway, bouldering, rope play and canopy viewing hammocks!

The existing playground within the fenced area will remain.

There are a limited number of Radiata Pine trees marked for removal due to damage that has been caused to those tree trunks by the playground chains currently attached. This damage is impacting the overall health of the Pine trees. For each of the trees removed, we propose to plant 10 new trees within the wider reserve.

Upgrade of this reserve is proposed to be funded in the 2022-2023 financial year. Part of this funding will come from the Federal Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Round 3 Program, with the other portion coming from Council’s annual budget process (subject to Council approval).
