Next to The Pines shopping centre, this reserve accommodates a range of recreation and play opportunities for local residents and visitors to the shopping centre. The Pines Community and Activity Centre is in the reserve and houses Manningham U3A and The Pines Learning and Activity Centre.
The Reserve's highlight is its playspace, which includes fitness equipment designed by a physiotherapist specifically to improve the strength, mobility and agility of older adults or those recovering from injury or illness. Watch the video to learn more about the exercise equipment. There are also clear instructions on site to assist people through the exercises.
