Due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions,

 we are excited to announce the reopening of some of our key services and community facilities. Find out more in our COVID-19 services update.

Garden Avenue Reserve

Garden Avenue Reserve is a local park in a great location to take the kids for a play on the playground or take advantage of the grassed areas for a picnic. Garden Avenue Reserve is also true to its name, featuring lovely landscaped gardens that complement this picturesque open space.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

For the continued good health of our community and as a measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we will:

  • Not be accepting bookings for groups of more than 20 people (this will be reviewed on the 22nd June 2020).
  • Lawn bowls equipment at Packer Park will not be available for use.

Our playgrounds, outdoor gyms, skate park, netball courts, basketball hoops are now open and sportsgrounds are open to approved sports clubs. People should not gather in groups of more than 20, and stay 1.5 metres apart from others where possible.

Note: Playgrounds will now be included in Citywide’s Working for Victoria cleaning blitz which is funded by the State Government. We strongly encourage the community to still take their own precautions and practice safe hygiene. For further information on the cleaning blitz, visit Citywide's website.

Garden Avenue Park provides significant open space in Glen Huntly. It has extensive grassed areas and picnic tables for picnics, with much natural shade provided by the mature trees, shade sails and arbours. 


The red and blue playground creates an energised but tranquil state of play, with equipment including:

  • tic-tac-toe
  • monkey bars
  • wave slide
  • a see-saw
  • spinners

Dog leash information

Garden Avenue Reserve is an on-leash area, which means you must keep your dog on-leash at all times.
