Norris Bank Reserve upgrade

Norris Bank Reserve is a 10.3 hectare open space in Bundoora, located on the north bank of Darebin Creek approximately 500m West of Plenty Road and within walking distance of the Bundoora Shops.

In October 2017, we adopted a master plan for Norris Bank Reserve which outlines a number of objectives and actions that will see Norris Bank Reserve upgraded and improved going into the future.


Key objectives of the master plan:

  1. Create a regional open space for all ages and abilities
  2. Promote and facilitate social community use and events
  3. Encourage and support informal active recreation
  4. Protect and enhance the ecological and cultural landscape
  5. Establish a safe and well maintained reserve
