Cambridge Reserve

Project Status : In Progress
Estimated Completion Date : TBC
Location : Cambridge Road, Forrestfield

The Cambridge Reserve Enhancement Project (the Project) proposes to transform Cambridge Reserve (currently classified as a passive open space reserve) into an improved public open space, with a portion proposed to be rezoned for residential development and for aged care purposes.


The City undertook a community engagement process in February 2018, to seek feedback on how residents would like to see Cambridge Reserve improved.

The process included setting up information stalls at the Forrestfield Shopping Centre and conducting an on site workshop at Cambridge Reserve, where participants took part in mapping ideas and an online survey.

The most common ideas put forward by the community included:

  • Walking trails and improved pathways
  • Pet friendly park
  • Basketball half court
  • Improved lighting
  • Open space lawns
  • Shade and seating
  • Soccer mini pitch.
The City engaged Urbis to prepare a plan that reflects the desires of the community. The Master Plan was presented to Council on 5 June 2018 and incorporates the community’s feedback. 

The City undertook a public advertising campaign over July-August 2018 to get community feedback on the draft Cambridge Reserve plan. This included pop-up information stalls, surveys and workshops.

The Final Concept Plan was endorsed by Council at the February Ordinary Council Meeting.

The key elements of the plan include:

  • Activity hub / Playground
  • Fenced bushland
  • Board-walk / Wetland
  • Open managed parkland
  • Fenced dog park
  • Pedestrian path network
  • Bush revegetation
  • Managed bushland
  • Residential development
  • Over 55’s residential development
  • Aged care group housing site.

Where to from here?

The City will progress the project through the land administrative and rezoning phases as well as undertaking further technical studies over the course of 2019/20. The rezoning phase will include public advertisement.
