Port agenda: Adoption of J L Murphy Reserve Masterplan

The J L Murphy Reserve masterplan is recommended for adoption at Monday's Council meeting in St Kilda from 6pm.

The masterplan will guide all future development of the Reserve. Key features of the plan include:

  • incorporation of a wetland to store and treat stormwater on the corner of Graham and Williamstown Road. The wetland will provide most of the future water needs of the Reserve. Water for playing surfaces was highlighted by all clubs as a priority
  • addition of a new field for soccer
  • a perimeter walking/running track around the Reserve
  • improving access to the Dig In Community garden
  • tree planting

The Council depot [cnr Plummer & Graham] is outside the scope of the masterplan. The new Parks and Open Space contractor will be located there when they are appointed later in the year. As a consequence, the Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club will move to Garden City Reserve to run their Sunday training programme and share the Sandridge Trugo Club.
