Stan Payne Reserve Upgrade will refurbish a portion of the reserve. 

Melton City Council is excited to be delivering this project which will be located next to the Diggers Rest train station, the Diggers Rest Bowls Club and along the busy Old Calder Highway that leads into Diggers Rest. 

The upgrade will include:

  • upgrade of shelter
  • upgrade of toilet block
  • picnic tables
  • drinking fountain
  • bluestone path
  • improvement of bowls club carpark
  • garden beds
  • park furniture
  • expansive grass area with irrigation

Construction will commence in mid-January 2020 and is expected to be completed in mid-2020.

The reserve will be closed during construction to maintain public safety and to complete construction as quickly as possible.  We will do everything possible to minimise impact.
