Jack Roper Reserve

Location:

217 Camp Road, Broadmeadows. Melway Ref 7 B10

Jack Roper Reserve is one Hume’s most popular parks.
Set beside a lake (a Melbourne Water retarding basin) the park facilities include a large playspace, barbecue and picnic facilities, public toilets, a soccer field, large car park and walking/cycling paths that connect into Moreland and to the Western Ring Road Bike Path.

A Master Plan for Jack Roper Reserve was undertaken in 2012 and it identifies a range of improvements to ensure that the park continues to meet the needs of the community.

Playspace Redevelopment
During 2014 and 2015, the main playspace is being completely redeveloped.
Council received a funding contribution from the State Government to assist with the development of a new Inclusive Playspace at Jack Roper Reserve. New swings and climbing nets have already been installed and the old timber fort structure will be removed. Some new paths will be constructed in June which may require the closure of the playspace for a short time so the works can be undertaken safely.

The main construction works are expected to commence in late July 2015. Council and contractors will try to maintain access to the swings, climbing nets and flying fox during construction. The playspace plans can be viewed here: www.hume.vic.gov.au/jackroperplay

Public Toilets Upgrade
Also in 2015, the public toilets will be upgraded. This will include improved facilities for people with a disability and their carers, a new layout, new fixtures and fittings and a general makeover. Temporary facilities will be provided while works are being undertaken.
