Phase 2 Consultation, 2022


Late last year, Council sought ideas and feedback from the local community for a new playspace at Talbot Park.

We wanted to let you know that we have been working on incorporating the community’s ideas into an exciting draft concept plan that also provides drainage improvements to the reserve.

The project will deliver the following benefits for the Oakleigh South community:

  • Drainage Improvements to reserve
  • New playspace and recreation infrastructure
  • Removal of old bocce strip
  • General reserve improvements such as visual amenity, accessibility, connections and perceptions of safety

Phase 1 Consultation, 2021

Project update

Thank you to those who participated in this project. Your feedback will be taken into account for the next stage of the project.


Council is planning to upgrade the playspace at Talbot Park, Oakleigh South to make it more interesting and fun for local children.

As a first step, we’d like to get your ideas on what could be included in the new park and other ideas for improvements to the reserve. These ideas will be used to develop a draft design, which we will then seek community feedback on.

Future design work for Talbot Park will only consider ideas that are appropriate for a reserve of this size and will take into consideration the site history, context and existing constraints of the reserve.

We look forward to making a place that is interesting and fun for the community, as well as investing in other features at the reserve to make it more welcoming and accessible for residents.

Thank you in advance for any feedback you are able to provide – together we can create a wonderful space.

Feedback is sought by Friday 17 December 2021.
