A cricket oval and new lights are coming to Kirwee Reserve as the first part of the Reserve Development Master Plan gets under way.

Work on the reserve development is due to start on Monday 23 November and will be completed in March 2021. The work will include upgrading the electrical and irrigation systems to future-proof further developments, as well as installing the new cricket oval and lighting.

It will also include landscaping changes, the removal of some trees on the west side of the reserve and the realignment of the No.2 field to free up space for future developments.

The Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management Committee, Kirwee Township Committee and the Council have worked together on the Master Plan over the last 18 months.

Pupils from Kirwee Model School have also carried out planting of native plants around the boundaries of the reserve.

Kirwee Recreation Reserve Management Committee Chair Raewyn Feast says the committee is excited and pleased to see work under way and the development will better cater for the sports users of the reserve.

“It will also complement and maximise open space for community to enjoy the quiet surroundings that a rural reserve brings.”

Future stages are planned to include sensory and junior play spaces and may involve the further development of the community hub and a pump track.
