Parks and Gardens

Open space areas play an important role in the lifestyle of our families as well as the positive impact they have on the amenity of our City. As such, council remains committed to maintaining these beautiful parks and recreational facilities for everyone to enjoy.

For members of the public using our parks and reserves for gatherings and events, we suggest bringing a garbage bag to clean the site after you have used it. Please take responsibility for removing excess rubbish to avoid bin overflow.


Public barbecues are available for use in many reserves throughout the City. They are available free of charge, on a first come first served basis.


If you see a light in one of our parks that is broken or not working, please contact us so that we can fix the problem.


Playgrounds are provided in many reserves throughout the City of Prospect. Equipment provided ranges from small scale junior play areas to larger "adventure" playgrounds. They are regularly inspected and maintained by Council's staff to ensure their safety.

Historical Information 

Parks in Prospect Cover

The Prospect Local History Group has produced a reference book, titled Parks in Prospect, which details the history of Council's parks and gardens. Each entry gives an overview of the history and features of the park or reserve, making it a perfect walker's companion. 

Copies are available for purchase from the Prospect Library at 1 Thomas Street, Nailsworth or the Council Office at 128 Prospect Road, Prospect.
