$240,000 Investment Brings Half Basketball Court, Revamped Playground, and More to Conquest Drive Reserve
Conquest Drive Reserve in Werribee has undergone a significant $240,000 upgrade, making playtime even more enjoyable for visitors. The enhancements include a brand new half basketball court, an upgraded playground, and fitness equipment.
Additionally, the kickabout lawn has been improved, the gazebo refurbished, and the BBQ area upgraded with additional shelter and a new picnic setting. The reserve has also seen the addition of more trees and garden beds, as well as improved lighting.
According to Councillor Peter Maynard, who oversees Wyndham City’s Active City portfolio, these works have enriched the play experience for children of all ages and have made Conquest Drive Reserve’s facilities more attractive to the community. He emphasized that creating better parks and public spaces is a top priority for the Council, and the upgrade at Conquest Drive Reserve exemplifies their commitment to providing residents with enhanced spaces to enjoy and stay active.
The project is part of the Council’s Parks Asset Renewal Program, which aims to transform older parks into modern and improved areas that cater to the community’s needs. Notably, other parks like Burgundy Drive Reserve in Wyndham Vale and Nangiloc Crescent Reserve in Werribee have also been successfully completed under this program.
As for ongoing projects, Truganina’s Aquarius Drive Reserve is receiving its finishing touches. The upgrade includes an improved kick-about space, an expanded and upgraded path network, and the addition of nature play elements, with all work scheduled to be completed by next month.
