Park improvements

In 2016, a new nature play space was created to encourage children to interact with water and nature, featuring a hand water pump at the top of a playful mound, a bird-hide play structure, timber tee pee, and more traditional play equipment. See Kirkdale Park - New nature play space for project details.

Park features
Walking your dog

    For parks which are off-leash you must still keep your dog under control. 

    In all other public places, dogs must be kept in control with a leash, cord or chain. Dogs are prohibited from the area around playgrounds or within creeks.


      See locations of recharge points for electric wheelchairs and scooters.


        See the Council Active Merri-bek website for leisure centres, pools, sports and activites in Merri-bek.
