Lower Loop Picnic Area - Toilets and barbecues out of order

The Lower Loop Picnic Area barbecues are out of order and the adjacent toilet block at Corben Oval is closed. This is due to an electrical supply problem that is expected to be reconnected by mid 2024.

The nearest toilets and barbecues are opposite at the Studley Park Picnic Area, accessed by foot across Kanes Bridge. There are other facilities at Westfield Picnic Area to the north on Yarra Bend Rd.

Parks Victoria apologises for any inconvenience.

Dickinson Reserve Playground Closed

The playground at Dickinson Reserve is closed due to safety concerns. The basket swing is still open for use.

The nearest playground with climbing structures, slides and swings is at Andrews Reserve, accessed from the Yarra Boulevard. Andrews Reserve is approximately 1 km from Dickinson Reserve.

Parks Victoria apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Shallow Waters - River Channel Downstream of Charles Grimes Bridge

The channel immediately downstream of Charles Grimes Bridge in the vicinity of Yarra's Edge Marina has reduced water depth as a result of sediment build up. Minimum depth at low tide may be less than 2m. Large vessels should navigate the area with caution.

Notice to River Users 21 February 2024
