Donvale Reserve is 11 hectares in size, with the majority of the Reserve providing a range of sporting facilities, including soccer, tennis, football, cricket, netball and basketball. The Reserve also houses the Montessori Pre-school Centre and limited informal recreation for local residents.
The Reserve has pedestrian access from five streets, including Mitcham Road which has a bus route, and vehicular access from Mitcham and Martha Streets. The playground, which was upgraded and relocated in 2002, serves the local community, users of the sports facilities and families of the adjacent pre-school. Open space is limited in this locality and while there is a path network, comprehensive play, picnic and other informal recreation opportunities are warranted at this Reserve.
