Robinson Reserve Master Plan

Robinson Reserve is a seven hectare reserve, adjacent to the Osborne Park Community Centre and bound by Royal, Park and Waterloo Streets in Tuart Hill. The reserve is classified as a district open space and provides valuable sporting and recreational opportunities for the community.

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

For more information, view the Council Meeting Minutes 20 February 2018 and 12 June 2018.

  • Stage one of the Robinson Reserve upgrade works has now been completed and has delivered a number of great improvements to the reserve for the community including:

    • Additional park furniture such as shelters, barbecues and seating
    • New path network
    • New shaded playground
    • New perimeter park fencing
    • Additional car parking facilities
    • New skate and scooter elements
    • New basketball/netball half court facilities
    • Improved landscaping.
  • With the successful implementation of stage one of the Robinson Reserve Master Plan, the City of Stirling is now progressing with stage two of the project. As part of stage two, the City is undertaking a building feasibility study of the existing sporting club room facilities.

    The first component of the feasibility study has seen engagement with key stakeholders in order to further understand their current and future building needs. In this regard, the City has received feedback and input from key Robinson Reserve stakeholders and will be including their feedback into the project. The first phase of this process was achieved via an in-depth stakeholder survey which the City analysed and is now conducting individual stakeholder meetings to further understand key stakeholder requirements.

    Once the City has analysed all feedback and information, it will be considered 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 feasibility of the project.

The public comment period closes 4.00pm, Friday 24 September 2018.

Where can I find a copy of the Master Plan?

The endorsed Robinson Reserve Master Plan can be found in the Document Library.

What elements are included in the new community playground?

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, steps and small features walls. The community playground also includes a scooter and skate area, a basketball court and a netball ring.

What will happen next?

Following the comment period, all feedback will be reviewed and considered. The outcomes of the engagement will then be used to confirm the playground design. 

Why has the playground moved?

Changing the location of the new playground to the south western corner of the reserve will create better links for families visiting the Osborne Community Hub. This co-location will enable families and local residents to browse the bookshelves in the library, attend a class or event at the community centre and then enjoy a relaxing picnic or play at Robinson Reserve. 

When will stage one works be finished?

We expect the stage one elements will be ready for the community to enjoy by June 2019.

This includes a new community playground, improved picnic amenities, recreational basketball and netball area, skate and scooter elements, a new public toilet and car parking improvements.
