Browns Reserve is a small reserve located in the heart of Abbotsford.
It is a dog on leash park.
The park has recently been upgraded.
The following works were carried out in June and July 2011:
Introduction of new garden beds of native vegetation to the northern, eastern and southern boundaries of the park
Introduction of a new soft paved area towards the front of the park, where grass is difficult to establish
Introduction of three round concrete spheres at the front of the park entrance to break up the paved area and provide informal play elements
New timber deck and ramp at the playground entrance to improve access and provide seating
Replacement of the retaining edge around the playground with chunky timber wharf sleepers to improve durability
New boulder edging to sections of the playground
Replacement of rear metal pipe fencing with timber posts and pipe
Removal of tree along the Nicholson Street frontage, to allow more natural light into the park, and improve sightlines.
Here is a copy of the flyer distributed to residents near the park in March 2011.
