Water play area

Booran Reserve was created from the decommissioned Caulfield Service Reservoir and opened in 2017. It has retained many unique elements of the old reservoir, including the perimeter walls, bluestone plinths and central 'sluice gate'. The art wall around the perimeter walls tells the story of water in a local context, from the tale of Tiddalik the Frog and indigenous people's connection to the land through to the development of water infrastructure in Melbourne.

Playground
The play space features a giant, 10-metre-high double dome rope climbing net with slide. This climbing net is the first of its kind in Australia. The net provides climbing challenges to provide expansive views of the play space and surrounding areas from the highest lookout platform. This viewpoint provides a birds-eye view to appreciate the water theme and patterns within the overall park design.

Other unique play equipment includes:

a giant bird's nest swing
dual flying fox with all abilities access seat
a 5-way swing
in-ground trampolines
an oversized mouse wheel
imaginative sensory play areas and cubbies
two-tiered sandpit
water pump with gates flowing into a rock-lined trickle stream.
Smaller accessible paths weave and explore through the playground and among shrubs, plantings and running water. The raised sandpit provides wheelchair access.

Water play feature
The water play feature is an exciting play experience that is unique to Booran Reserve. It is popular with both young and old, especially on those warm Melbourne days, and includes:

a surface splash pad
water jets which spray water upwards in various patterns and at different times.
The water play feature operates the following times

October to March, 9am to 7.30pm
April to September, 9am to 5pm
Please note: The water play feature is an unsupervised facility. While we make every effort to ensure it is operational, there is no guarantee it will be running at all times. As it is sometimes closed for water treatment to ensure the health and safety of all users.
