Historic Sloan’s Reserve revitalised

​29 September 2017

One of Kwinana’s most historic reserves has received a $350k upgrade as part of the City’s Parks for People Program. The Sloan’s Reserve upgrade includes new picnic furniture, BBQs, outdoor exercise equipment, playground, an improved path network, landscaping and fencing. The outdoor fitness area features eight stations including accessible exercise equipment. 

The carpark has also seen a significant upgrade with a new sealed asphalt surface and marked parking bays. Water sensitive urban design principles have been incorporated to deal with storm water. 

“The City has developed a staged approach to upgrading Kwinana’s 100-plus parks and reserves based on community priorities. The Parks for People Strategy aims to ensure residents have access to a variety of well equipped parks and public open spaces”, said Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams.

“I look forward to seeing local families take advantage of the fantastic new facilities at Sloan’s Reserve. With a new picnic area, paths, and play equipment, this space is sure to become a popular outdoor meeting place”, added Mayor Adams. 

Sloan’s Reserve is home to heritage site Sloan’s Cottage and a community garden run by Kwinana Community Share. The Kwinana Loop Trail runs through Sloan’s Reserve, making it a popular walking spot. Improvements are also planned for the Loop Trail including maintenance, upgraded signage and maps.​

Sloan’s Reserve is located off Sloan Drive in Leda.
