Residents can now give feedback on proposed plans for Rainforest Street Reserve, which will be Box Hill’s biggest passive reserve.
Rainforest Street Reserve located off The Water Lane is proposed to be a district level park, and is therefore planned to have significant facilities, including:
- An extensive district level playground featuring a range of play equipment catering for various ages and abilities with shade structures and selected areas of rubber soft fall surfacing
- A Skate bowl/plaza facility
- Junior and senior mountain bike trails
- An amenities building
- Picnic facilities including picnic shelters, picnic settings, park seating, and barbeques
- A turf kick-about space
- On-site car parking
- Lighting to the main playspace
- Concrete pathways including internal paths as well as connections beyond the site
- Soft landscaping including a raingarden/swale to treat on-site stormwater
The site features a large expanse of remnant Cumberland Plain Woodland, which will be retained and enhanced where possible, with the park also featuring a natural theme to complement the vegetation.
