“Ecology valued here”
Review of Wilsons Reserve

Wilsons Reserve
Reviewed 11 September 2016

The Boulevard at Ivanhoe attracts many visitors after dark before Christmas, when many of the houses carry brilliant displays of decorative lights. It is also good to head to The Boulevard in daylight, as it gives road access to several excellent areas of parkland on the floodplain close to the Yarra River and only 10-11 km from the city.
Wilson Reserve dates from the early decades of the 20th century, when it was presented to the Heidelberg Council by a group of visionary locals, one of whom it is named after. As the land is a natural reserve with a valuable eco-system in place it is not the best choice for dog walking or sports (there are restrictions). However there are a few seats plus children's play facilities: the usual swings, springers, monkey bars and climbing frame plus an exceedingly long slide.
A number of ecology-minded groups monitor and work to protect the water, the native bush, and the native wildlife (frogs, bats, birds).
