New active play space now open at Joyce Park

What was once an unused turf for a bowling green, taking up precious open space, has been revitalised into a new community active recreation play space.

Joyce Park in Ormond is one of Glen Eira’s much loved and utilised open spaces, featuring a playground, barbecue and picnic facilities, off-leash dog areas, and beautiful gardens with a rotunda commonly used for weddings and other significant events. The new active recreation play space further adds to the diversity of this gorgeous park.

As the weather gets warmer and it stays light longer, grab a ball of any size and head down to enjoy:a double-

  • sided hit-up wall for any type of rebound activity such as tennis, soccer, lacrosse;
  • two basketball rings and a netball ring;
  • a soccer goal for half-court activities; and
  • a table tennis table.

The new play space also includes seating, a shelter, bike racks, a drink fountain and new garden beds.
