Brimbank residents have a great open space to play, relax and enjoy a picnic with family and friends at the newly upgraded O’Connors Paddock in Cairnlea.

In a widespread city like Brimbank, there are so many hidden gems to explore.

If you’re looking for a great nature playground with rocks, steppers, hanging log, climbing ropes and posts, look no further than the much-loved O’Connors Paddock in Cairnlea.

We recently upgraded this wonderful space to create a new picnic and shade area, bicycle rack, and water fountain with a refill facility – offering a perfect gathering space for family and friends.

Here you’ll find plenty of space for the kids to run around, including a half court with rugby and soccer goal posts for active play.

Relax among the beautiful shady trees, as we plan for more trees around the play area in the upcoming planting season in April – September 2020.

Around Cairnlea you’ll also find many other parks, reserves and waterways including a network of walking and cycling trails. As the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to make the most of your local park.

Our parks are great places to get outdoors and be active, walk the dog, throw a ball, share a barbeque and catch up with friends and family.
