A fresh start for Seabrook Reserve

Hume City Council has unveiled the draft Seabrook Reserve Masterplan and is seeking the community’s feedback on future improvements to the area.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said we are asking the community to share their thoughts about the draft Seabrook Reserve Masterplan, which looks at opportunities to enhance the reserve for the future.

“People want to use our local parks and reserves and they need places to play, relax, explore, exercise and enjoy our natural environment.

“The draft masterplan considers how to maximise Seabrook Reserve, its size, location and existing natural assets, while also introducing new facilities, infrastructure and pathways to create a local destination that attracts plenty of visitors,” Cr Moore said.

“It also considers ways to make the reserve more accessible and safe, as well as providing more opportunities for people to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle with upgraded sporting facilities and a new pavilion.  

“Creating welcoming, useful and dynamic spaces for people of all ages is a priority and that is why this draft plan is so exciting for the future of Seabrook reserve.”    

The draft Seabrook Masterplan includes:

  • a new district standard play space;
  • picnic furniture and facilities;
  • improved path connections, a new pedestrian bridge and circuit shared path;
  • upgraded sporting facilities including rugby pitches and cricket grounds and a new district quality pavilion;
  • ·new lighting, parking and local road access to improve accessibility to the reserve and sporting facilities;
  • ·new housing opportunities facing onto the reserve to improve community connections and promote local neighborhood activity within the reserve; and
  • creek re-vegetation, local habitat enhancement and water sensitive urban design to improve run off and water quality in the creek.
