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?

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

  • turned off drinking fountains and barbecues
  • suspended bookings for our venues, parks or reserves until further notice.
Our playgrounds, outdoor gyms, skate park are now open and sportsgrounds are open to sports clubs. People should not gather in groups of more than 10, 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. Council will also undertake regular cleaning of all playground equipment and other high touch surfaces. 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.

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.
