New recreation reserve planned at Northlake


Northlake residents will benefit from a newly constructed, large recreation reserve conveniently positioned close to the Village centre. The proposed site of 3800m2 is on the corner of Northlake Drive and Mt Burke Street and will offer a wide range of facilities, including a new multi-purpose, all weather court for tennis lovers.

Chris Meehan, Winton CEO, says, “it has been great to see Northlake residents making the most of the onsite tennis court since it was installed in 2017. We have had a lot of feedback on the court from residents about their wish for a wider recreational area that all families utilise. As a result, the court will move to a much-improved wider facility that is nearly 10 times larger than the existing tennis court area.

Our Northlake tennis lovers will have full use of the current tennis court until the new superior facility is complete in 2019, at which point we will remove the old one.”
Along with the multi-use court, residents will also enjoy a basketball half-court, outdoor fitness equipment set along a fitness trail and a large spacious green area to play their favourite sports.

Surrounded with flowering cherry trees and bordered by Maple and Oaks, the beautifully landscaped grounds will be an inviting place to spend time, whether it be for a game of backyard cricket or to meet up with friends for dinner using the gas BBQ’s in the community barbeque area.

The new recreation reserve was proposed to the council in July 2018 as part of a wider design package for 175 lots.
