About the project
As part of our Playgrounds Development Strategy, we are planning to upgrade the playground at Hilda Street Reserve in Balwyn. Due to its age and condition the playground is scheduled to be replaced in 2021-2022.
The project will include new play equipment and nature play opportunities, improving accessibility, renewal of park amenities and new landscaping.

Tree health at Hilda Street Reserve
Please note our Tree team are currently reviewing the health and structure of some of the trees within Hilda Street Reserve.
Some tree works or removals may be required to be undertaken and the community will be updated if these are deemed necessary prior to these works taking place.
The trees works are not connected to the playground renewal works and may be undertaken at any time over the next 18 months. If a tree is deemed to be a safety issue and is required to be removed, it will be offset by a replacement within the same vicinity.
