$30 Million Merrifield Recreation Reserve Opens to the Public
Merrifield’s brand new Recreation Reserve is now complete and open to the public.
Merrifield Recreation Reserve adds to the growing education and community hub at the centrepiece of the Merrifield community – making it even easier for residents to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
The Merrifield Dog Park located within the reserve was officially opened on Friday 20th May 2022 by the The Hon. Lily D’Ambrosio, Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, along with the fabulous ‘Dogs of Merrifield’ photography exhibition.
With 1 in 2 Merrifield households dog-owners, residents will enjoy the amazing features within the brand new 5,000 square metre off-leash dog park – conveniently located at the southern end of the Merrifield Recreation Reserve (corner of Blackmore Rd and Maystone Drive). MAB worked closely with Hume City Council and Member for Yuroke The Hon. Ros Spence to secure a $275,000 State Government Grant towards delivery of the dog park.
