G Den Dulk Reserve Park Improvement Project
G Den Dulk Reserve serves as an important open space corridor within Altona and supports a variety of passive recreation activities and facilities including the Somers Parade Kindergarten and Latitude community support services. Improvements are planned for the eastern end of the reserve (the section between Seagull Avenue and Maidstone Street - opposite the Somers Parade shops).
Following extensive community consultation, plans were developed to upgrade this reserve.
The upgrade includes:
- the replacement of the playground
- creation of a new quarter basketball court and activities area
- reserve landscaping
- new park furniture
- connecting pathways
- community garden space
Council has also constructed two projects from the 'Pitch My Idea 2019-2020 Budget' within this development.
The newly refurbished G. Den Dulk Reserve is now open to the public, just in time for the summer school holidays.
The final concept plan for the site was developed following extensive feedback from the community.
Changes to the park include a brand new playground with swings for all ages and a tilted sky runner (to be installed in early 2020), a quarter basketball court/activities area, a community garden space, new landscaping and park furniture.
The community garden and additional mature trees will be planted in the cooler months of 2020.
