Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve planning continues
Enjoying recreational activities at Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve will be a great way for people to spend time with family and friends outdoors.
Access to green open spaces bring a range of benefits, and with access to Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve there will be new areas to enjoy and explore in your neighbourhood.
We are looking to work with the local community and interested stakeholders to progress the state government initiative to open Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve to land-based recreational activity.
On-line community information sessions have helped to capture your ideas and an expressions of interest process for individuals interested in joining our Community Reference Group was successfully conducted.
Community Reference Group
The across-government Taskforce overseeing the implementation of this program has established and is working with the Happy Valley Community Reference Group.
The group, established for a defined period of time in the lead up to the opening, is one of the mechanisms we are using to provide an understanding of the community’s thoughts and ideas for the Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve and to account for the issues of importance to the community.
The Community Reference Group will provide advice and input through the process to enhance the community experience in this space.
