Merna Drive, Templestowe
Melway ref. 33 H4
This small reserve is located on the corner of Merna Drive and Church Street and across the road from Templestowe Park Primary School.
It has the potential to function as recreational open space. While Mandella Reserve primarily services the school catchment with play and informal recreation opportunities, Merna Reserve could be enhanced with additional tree planting and some park furniture catering for parents waiting for school children.
The 2004 Open Space Strategy identified the Reserve as a potential area for planting new River Red Gums. A low brick wall framing the entrance to the residential estate occupies the corner of the Reserve.
