Parks & Environment


Maintenance Works at Blackwall Reach Reserve, Bicton

The City of Melville will be performing maintenance works along paths within Blackwall Reach Reserve commencing Tuesday 28th February 2017.  While these works are being completed path closures and traffic management will be in place to ensure safety of staff and reserve users.  Reserve users are asked to adhere to signage and detours put in place.


Jeff Joseph Reserve Attadale Revegetation

The City has secured a further $19,000 grant from the Department of Parks and Wildlife to implement Stage 2 of the revegetation works at Jeff Joseph Reserve, Attadale.  Stage 1 saw the planting of over 11,000 sedges (grass-like plants) and shrubs on the foreshore by City staff, the Green Army and community volunteers.  Stage 2 will involve continued revegetation, weed control, track formalisation and maintenance of the site overall.

Unfortunately, some of the seedlings installed in Stage 1 have been recently vandalised with a number of established plants being removed. A media release has been drafted to encourage the community to take ownership of the site and report any future incidents. 

Please contact John Christie, Director Technical Services on 9364 0617 should you require further information.

Wireless Hill Park - Featured in Australian Geographic

The orchids usually only flower after fire events and they were observed flowering en masse after the recent small fire we had at Wireless Hill. The full article can be found here.
