Brierly Recreation Reserve is a 12 hectare park in the north east of the city.

Council developed a master plan for the Brierly Recreation Reserve to guide improvements to the park and its infrastructure over the next decade. The master plan was adopted by Council in September 2012.

A recommendation of the Master Plan was for Council to support the creation of a residents and users group - "Friends of Brierly Reserve". This group has now been established and will meet approximately 3-4 times per year. The group will provide feedback to Council on the Master Plan implementation and Community Hub Feasibility project.

Funding for Stage One

In October 2022 the Victorian Government, through its Local Sports Infrastructure Fund, committed $1 million for the Stage One redevelopment of Brierly Reserve.

This will focus on the Eastern Oval area and include the upgrade of playing surfaces, installation of two full-sized soccer pitches with improved drainage, sub-surface irrigation, a new synthetic cricket pitch, LED lighting (200 lux), fencing and the demolition of an old pavilion.

Council will also contribute up to $1 million towards Stage One.
