Moorabbin Reserve Draft Park Plan 2016-24

As part of Council’s commitment to develop a Community Football Hub at Moorabbin Reserve, a draft park plan has been prepared for improvements across the reserve.

We're inviting you to have your say on the draft plan to ensure that it reflects the community's needs and values. We’re keen to hear from park users of all ages, including dog owners and surrounding residents.

The draft plan was developed in consultation with a community working group to ensure the public open space is well considered and integrates with existing plans for a new pavilion, car park, training ground and oval by St Kilda Football Club.

Council's draft plan provides a blueprint for future works - subject to funding - and provides for seamless integration between works being undertaken by St Kilda Football Club and the rest of the public open space.

The draft plan retains the existing dog off-lead area.

Proposed improvements to the parkland include:

  • new walking paths to improve pedestrian access within the reserve and connection to surrounding streets
  • upgraded surfaces on existing paths
  • new junior playground at the existing Linton/Perry Street park
  • new youth area/play space in the northern section of the reserve
  • new double picnic shelter, barbecue and picnic tables
  • new exercise station
  • new lighting on the main path
  • landscaping and tree planting
  • storm water harvesting for re-use (funded through development contributions).

Ask a question

  • There is a clear pedestrian desire line between Margaret St and Horsecroft Pl. Looking at the draft, there aren't plans to convert this into a formal pathway. This is an important link between the Moorabbin activity centre and the residential area east of the reserve. Can you please advise? My email is chapelstboy@hotmail.com or phone 0400 44 22 00.

    Hi chapz, thanks for your question. The open space located between Margaret Street and Horscroft Place is the proposed future training ground for St Kilda Football Club and community football. The grass surface will be improved by the clubs to enable the site to be used as a training ground. 

    Due to its future as a training ground, a path is unable to be provided at this location. Instead, the draft park plan proposes a perimeter path to the training ground, linking the reserve to the southern section of the current Harvey Norman site. This site is currently subject to a planning application for residential apartments and proposes a new pedestrian link from Linton Street to Healy Street, near Central Avenue, providing a more direct access to the station. 

  • What sort of fence is going around the training surface and will the public have access

    Jeeff asked over 2 years ago

    Thank you for your question. The training ground will not be fenced. The area will be accessible to the community when not in use for training.

    The question on the survey on fencing is for the main oval only.
