The Oaklands Estate Reserve is in the south west corner of
the district and offers a large picnic area with BBQs available. It is
well treed with large eucalypts and exotics.
There are numerous walking trails which are used by
many people to walk their dogs. City of Marion has installed bag
dispensers to remove all dog droppings.
The old toilet block has been removed and a twin exeloo now replaces
the 4 toilets of the old.
A plan for redevelopment of the reserve was proposed in
May 2017 and the first stage of works is now being undertaken
There is also a vineyard which is undergoing some revitalisation by local
residents. The grapes are old style heritage red and green table
were originally planted in 1923.
Many of the vines are old and a vineyard management programme needs to
be installed to recover from years of neglect.
