A construction site with diggers and a truck A new playground, cricket nets and other upgrades are being installed at the Kirwee Reserve as the next stage in the reserve upgrade, which started last year.

Two new pedestrian entrances are being added from the Tramway Road side of the reserve in addition to other tidy ups to the Tramway Road side of the reserve and some ground levelling. New cricket practice nets are being built to support the use of the reserve for cricket over the summer months.

Construction of the new playground has also begun. The new playground will replace the existing playground and be located in a new central area in the reserve and is due to be open in mid-June. It will feature a mix of equipment designed for a wide range of ages, including a basket swing, slides and a see saw, along with shade sails, picnic tables and a bike rack.

The first stage of the Reserve Development Master Plan saw a cricket oval, new irrigation, new sports field lighting and a pump track installed last year.

The Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management Committee and the Council have worked together on the Master Plan. Project Manager Sandrine Carrara says "it's great to progress this second stage of works, and really exciting for the local children of Kirwee get to spend time on a new fantastic playground in the near future”.
