COVID-19 update:

On Sunday 6 September 2020, the Premier announced Victoria’s COVID-19 roadmap to reopening. Many of the Stage 4 restrictions remain in place but there have been some slight changes. Find out more here.

Riley Reserve

Riley Reserve is a small, open space park with an expansive grassed area. The recent construction of the sky rail has opened the façade by removing borders and providing access from Railway Parade.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

Our parks and open space remain open for exercise between the permitted times 5am to 9pm.

Exercise is now limited to two hours per day and no more than five kilometres from your home. Two people or a household can meet outdoors for a maximum of two hours for exercise or recreation outside your home, as long as neither of you travel more than five kilometres from your home. Always remember to wear a face covering and practise social distancing.

Riley Reserve is popular for unstructured recreational activities such as kicking a ball, as well as quiet social gatherings or relaxation. Riley Reserve now plays an important connection between the north/south shared path of Boyd Park to the east/west Djerring Trail under the sky rail.

Dog leash information

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