Rosslare Court Reserve is getting a makeover!

Each year Wyndham City undertakes upgrades to improve our open spaces and parks.

Rosslare Court Reserve in Hoppers Crossing is in need of an upgrade to provide more diverse play and recreational opportunities to better cater for residents in the surrounding neighbourhood, and to enhance the beautiful natural elements of the Reserve.

As a result, Council has produced a concept design for the Reserve including a range of changes to improve the space.

We want to improve the Reserve and provide upgrades while enhancing the existing natural aesthetic of the Reserve and maintaining open lawn areas, as requested by the community during the first round of community consultation.

Rosslare Court Reserve is a large open space ready for an upgrade. Currently, the open areas of the Reserve provide a great opportunity to activate the space and provide new infrastructure for local residents.

How did we get here?

First round of engagement

Our first round of engagement in August 2021 asked for ideas on how we could improve the Reserve, how you currently like to use the Reserve, what new features your would like included and for your feedback on our initial concept design.


What you told us

We made the following changes to our design for Rosslare Court Reserve based on what you told us last year.

Safety
  • The playspace has been moved for a better connection with Rosslare Court as well as better viewpoints for safety.
  • The existing dense tree planting will be thinned and only tall canopy trees will be kept for better visual access.
  • The upgrade encourages more use of the Reserve, meaning more people around for an increased sense of safety.
  • Improvements to the Hawthorn Drive play area will restrict monkey bikes in the Reserve.

Over-development
  • The playspace has been re-located to activate an underutilised area and make use of existing trees in the Reserve.
  • Reducing the size of the playspace means we won't over-develop the natural Reserve and will keep the large lawn space.
  • The natural elements of the Reserve are being improved with environmental wetland elements.
Play types/Features

We received a lot of feedback around how you would like to use the upgraded Reserve:

  • Scooting/cycling/loop track – we've included a circuit path in the design.
  • Ball games/running – an open lawn space is included in the design.
  • Exploring/touching – exploring spaces under existing trees, as well as nature play and rock swale is included.
  • Picnic settings and seating – multiple seating areas with tree shade and two picnic areas are included.
  • Balancing, climbing units and swings will be incorporated into play equipment.
