Latest update

Upgrade works are continuing to progress. Since our last update:

  • picnic shelters with tables and bench seats have been installed
  • football posts have been installed
  • concrete pitches for the cricket nets have been poured, with the nets to be installed in the coming month
  • playground shade sail posts have been installed, with the shade sail to be installed in the next couple of weeks.

The dog waste bag dispenser has also been moved from the stand near Candy Road to another post directly adjacent to the rubble carpark area.

Application of an acrylic layer and line marking on the basketball court is scheduled for October and will mark completion of the reserve upgrade.


We are excited to be delivering an upgrade to the sport and recreation facilities at Serpentine Reserve in O’Halloran Hill. With the support of Erin Thompson Member for Davenport, the state government is providing a special purpose grant of $300,000 towards this project.

In February and March 2023 we consulted the community on the project, including an on-site drop in session on 1 March.

The concept plan for the proposed project scope of works that we engaged on can be viewed here and included:

  • New half basketball court construction
  • Cricket net refurbishment
  • Solar lighting for rubble carpark (directly south of the cricket ground)
  • New picnic shelter, table and bench seats
  • Playground shadesail
  • New drinking fountain (under review).

As part of our engagement we also met with the Southern Serpents Cricket Club to discuss the plan. The club supported the draft concept plan and is working with us on the details of the cricket net refurbishment.


Construction of works will be staged to minimise disturbance to Serpentine Reserve users. This will include scheduling some works outside of the cricket season to minimise impacts to the Southern Serpents Cricket Club.
