Great News! The upgrade works at Serpentine Reserve are now complete and all parts of the reserve are open.

Completion of the upgrade was marked by an opening event on 25 October, attended by Erin Thompson Member for Davenport, Councillor Marion Themeliotis, Councillor Geoff Eaton, Councillor Kevin Rilett as well as local community members and contractors involved in the upgrade works.


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.

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.
