Park Orchards Reserve is 1.6 hectares and provides a range of community and sporting facilities, including a one court indoor stadium, community house, tennis courts and a playspace installed in 2010.
The reserve is on Crown Land but managed by Manningham Council as Committee of Management. The stadium is also located on Crown Land which forms part of Manningham’s open space network and there is a joint usage agreement between the Education Department and Council that enables both school and community usage.
The reserve is well developed and a central hub to the Park Orchards residential community. It is in close proximity to the local Maternal and Child Health Centre, pre-school, primary school and local shopping centre.
Given its high level of use, the reserve needs to remain accessible to local residents by foot, bicycle or bus.
