Recent park openings and upgrades

12 Mar 2024

There are lots of things that make Merri-bek such a great place to live, work and play.

One important one is our parks!

Parks are amazing community spaces for people to come together, take a breather or get some exercise.

We’re always working to make our parks better, and we have a few upgrades to share.

Moomba Dog Park, Fawkner - a new fenced off-leash dog park

This new park features shade trees, a shelter, plenty of seating, drinking fountains, agility equipment and different surface materials for dogs to explore. There is a separately fenced quiet dog zone from the main dog zone.

Coburg Lake - new fitness equipment

We recently replaced fitness equipment stations at Coburg Lake. There is also a new accessible drinking fountain with dog bowl, and a platform seat with shade trees.

Kingsford Smith Ulm Dog Park, Glenroy - a new fenced off-leash dog park

This new park features dedicated small-dog area, agility equipment, shelter and seating, a sand pit and more.

ATC Cook Reserve, Glenroy - new fitness equipment

We’ve installed new fitness equipment, an accessible drinking fountain with a dog bowl and platform seat with shade trees. Stay tuned for new fitness equipment coming for seniors, along with a new shelter.

We hope you are enjoying these new spaces!
