Ted Ajani Reserve

Thompsons Road, Templestowe Lower
Melway ref. 32 K7

The 5.7 hectare Ted Ajani Reserve provides sporting, recreational and meeting facilities for Bulleen and Lower Templestowe residents and the wider community. The reserve offers facilities for tennis, cricket, football, scouts, community groups, two community halls, and a children’s playspace, and as such is very densely developed. 

Ted Ajani Reserve also plays an important role in the network of pedestrian links and safe crossing points over major roads, with links to the south via David Road to the Manningham Road pedestrian overpass, and an off-street link to the Thompsons Road pedestrian crossing. It is important to ensure that the link between David Road and Manningham Road is retained into the future.

Exercise Equipment

The outdoor exercise equipment was installed in partnership between Council and the Victorian Government to encourage residents to get active in their local parks in Manningham. The equipment is easy to use and has been designed for adults of all ages and fitness levels. Some of it has been designed by physiotherapists to improve the health and well being of older adults to prevent falls and maintain independent living, by improving their balance, hand eye coordination and movement in the joints such as shoulders, wrist and fingers. The equipment is available everyday for community use.
