Project overview

Council is developing a 10-year Masterplan for the Glenlyon Recreation Reserve to inform the future planning, provision and enhancement of the reserve.

The Glenlyon Recreation Reserve includes the Glenlyon Racecourse and Glenlyon Mineral Spring and covers an area of approximately 50 acres. The reserve has a Heritage Overlay of Local Significance.

The Glenlyon Recreation Reserve includes a pavilion, sports oval with synthetic cricket wicket, cricket training net, playground, barbeque and picnic facilities, public toilet amenities, walking and riding tracks and trails, equestrian cross-country course, equestrian arena, wood chopping area, camping grounds and shooting range with supporting infrastructure.

In 2019 Council engaged a consultant to develop the Glenlyon Recreation Reserve Masterplan and a working draft Masterplan was developed after undertaking the initial community engagement phase of the project.

In early 2020 the Masterplan project was paused to undertake an investigation of land contamination at the reserve. This matter has recently been resolved enabling the Masterplan development to recommence.

Community engagement on the Masterplan development is underway.

Following this engagement, the draft Masterplan will be considered for endorsement by Council for public exhibition in early 2023. The public exhibition period will inform final changes to the draft Masterplan prior to Council’s consideration to adopt the final Masterplan later in 2023.

How to participate

Council hosted community drop-in sessions in November and provided a survey to gather insights and feedback on the broader themes of the working draft Masterplan. The themes are recreation, infrastructure, vegetation, access, signage and fencing.

The survey is now closed. Thank you for your feedback.
