Council formally endorsed enhancement plans for Norwood Reserve and Woodland Park at the Council meeting on 20 March 2023.

The endorsement will see staged works and improvements take place in the spaces over the coming years.

Deputy Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Tasa Damante, thanked residents for their feedback in developing the enhancement plans.

“The enhancement plans have been developed based on feedback from key stakeholders and members of the community, to help ensure both Norwood Reserve and Woodland Park meet the future needs of our community,” Cr Damante said.

“Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. We are looking forward to seeing improvements in these spaces over the coming years.”

Norwood Reserve

Norwood Reserve in Ringwood North has an open space area that is currently under-utilised, so proposed improvements anticipated for the coming years include:

  • a flexible open space
  • canopy trees, understory and avenue planting
  • nature play elements
  • improved signage, seating areas and car parking.
