The Reserve at Marshall & Leonards St Tootgarook

Posted by antonellaceli on December 20, 2012 at 7:55 AM

In 2010 residents were concerned about the state of their local reserve at Marshall St, Tootgarook. It was open space so cars would drive on through, rubbish was being dumped there and the vegetation was overgrown. I was approached by the community to do something about it, so with the support of Council officers attention was given to finding a solution in consultation with residents who live there. During the last two years South East Water has used the site as their depot while they were doing sewerage works in Rye, upon vacating the site SEW committed to contribute towards the remediation of the site - that was so good of them to make that offer for the community. A brief masterplan was drawn up for the reserve to turn into a leash free, recreational reserve for the community to enjoy. The remediation of the reserve is progressing slowly but surely.

I was really happy when recently the fencing around the whole reserve was completed - thanks to officer advocacy and SEW monetary contributions. The reserve is now starting to look a lot more decent for the local community to enjoy the leash free and I can't wait for playground and the rest of the amenities to be installed.
