In September 2015, Council adopted the Windsor Siding Reserve master plan that will introduce new and improved facilities at this popular Windsor park.

Implementation of the master plan was planned in six stages with construction budgeted over several financial years.

The first stage of construction started in mid-2016 and subsequent stages have been rolled out progressively since then.  It is anticipated all stages of the master plan implementation will be completed the end of 2024.

30 January 2024 - Finishing touches

Earlier this month the pump track closed for a week to finalise landscaping works.

The temporary fencing remains in place, to protect the new plantings, while the track is open.

In early-March, all remaining fencing will come down and an opening event is planned - details of which will be shared when a date has been finalised.


21 December 2023 - Pump Track open

The Windsor Siding Pump Track is open, ahead of schedule and just in time for the holidays!

Originally planned for a January 2024 opening, the contractor has pulled out all the stops to get the pump track up and running before a taking well-earned end-of-year break.

While the pump track is now operational, there are still works to be done including landscaping and lots of tree and garden bed planting.

The finishing touches to the track surrounds will continue in January.

Our thanks to the Windsor community for your interest in the project and your patience during construction.

Project

Stage 4 - Windsor Train Station connection

The final stage of the master plan implementation will deliver a safe and attractive connection between the reserve and the railway station, with:

  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992 compliant pathway
  • Improved sight lines to and from the reserve
  • New lighting to provide a well-lit pathway for night time commuters
  • New seating to encourage use of the area and passive surveillance
  • Landscaping

 

Please note: existing vegetation will be retained where possible.

We are currently working with Metro Trains Melbourne and the Department of Transport to finalise the design.
