Opening Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Enjoying recreational activities at Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve will be a great way for people to spend time with family and friends outdoors.

Access to green open spaces bring a range of benefits, and with access to Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve there will be new areas to enjoy and explore in your neighbourhood.

As an interested community member, we’d like to work with you as we progress the state government initiative to open Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve to land and water-based recreational activity before the end of 2021.

To help guide the way we do this, please contact Paul Smitheram, Stakeholder Engagement Advisor on 7424 2489, at paul.smitheram@sawater.com.au to share your ideas and to register for project updates.


Community Reference Group

The Community Reference Group is partnering with the Government to design and shape public access to Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve for recreational activities. It is currently assisting in the development of plans by providing advice and input through the process to enhance the community experience in this space.


Working with the community

All registered stakeholders and nearest residents will be provided regular project updates and requests for their direct feedback.

In the meantime, we also encourage you to take our quick poll on their preferred recreation activities they would like to see accommodated within the reservoir, our survey on what’s most important to you when we consider public access to the reservoir reserve and to contribute your ‘ideas’ to our interactive map below.
