Robinson Reserve Master Plan

The Robinson Reserve Master Plan was adopted by Council in June 2018, after extensive community engagement, and will be delivered over two stages.

The focus of stage one is on upgrading a number of elements within the reserve and will see the development of a new community playground, improved picnic amenities, recreational basketball and netball area, skate and scooter elements, a new public toilet and car parking improvements.

These elements are planned to be ready for use by June 2019.

Following the 2018 Agricultural Show in November, you will begin to see a number of works happening at the reserve:

  • Storage containers will be delivered to support community groups using the reserve

  • Construction fencing will be installed around the south western corner of the reserve in support of playground installation and building demolition

  • Building demolition works will commence

  • A new foot path network and reserve fencing will be installed.

A key feature of stage one will be the replacement of the reserve’s current playground, and subsequent removal of the existing playground.

A concept design for the new community playground has been developed and we would like the community's feedback .

Community playground concept design

Throughout Master Plan consultation the community said a playground consisting of modern play equipment with nature play elements suitable for people of all ages was very important.

The community also mentioned that it would be good to provide separate areas for dogs and children. Locating the playground in the south western corner will help separate dogs and children as well as create better links to the Osborne Hub. This means families and local residents will be able to borrow a book, attend a class or event at the Hub then enjoy a relaxing picnic or play at Robinson Reserve.

The proposed concept design aims to bring together a range of community needs and technical requirements while also applying relevant policy/strategy requirements.

The community playground includes play elements such as a large combination play unit with slides and rope climbing elements, a basket swing, spring rockers, an extra high double swing, sand and nature play features.

Adjacent to the playground will be picnic shelters, a barbecue, drink fountains, tree plantings, and steps and small features walls. The community playground will also include a scooter and skate area, a basketball court and a netball ring.

The sections located to the right of this page provide more information about the exciting activities that will be happening at Robinson Reserve over the next six months.

Make sure you check in to this project webpage regularly as ongoing information and updates about this important initiative will be provided here.

    With the successful implementation of stage one of the Robinson Reserve Master Plan, the City of Stirling is now progressing towards stage two of the project. As part of stage two of Robinson Reserve Master Plan, the City of Stirling is undertaking a building feasibility review of the existing sporting club room facilities.

    The first component of the feasibility study is to engage with key stakeholders to better understand their current and future building needs. In this regard, the City is seeking feedback and input from key Robinson Reserve stakeholders in relation to their current and future building needs.The first stage is for stakeholders to consider their needs and provided feedback in the form of a survey.

    Following receipt of the survey the City will then analyse the feedback and information and consider in accord with relevant City provision standards, State Sporting Association trends and needs, industry provision benchmarks, sporting participation trends and future growth opportunities. This information will then be utilised to determine needs and progress concept designs and indicative cost estimates to assist with the feasibility project.

    In this regard it would be appreciated if you could take the time to engage with your Committee to complete the clubroom needs survey below. This will assist the City in developing a greater understanding into the current and future needs of your club or group which will then be utilised to determine clubroom needs and assist with development of concept designs. The City will set up a subsequent meeting to review your feedback and discuss how the City can best address your future building needs.

    The survey is open until 4.00pm Monday 21 October 2019.
