Morawa Avenue Reserve

Bordered by Morawa Avenue, Tasman Avenue and Newcombe Drive, Morawa Reserve in Gilles Plains is an informal sporting reserve that is often used by the local residents.

In recent years, the Tea Tree Gully Council has done a lot to up-grade the park. They have cut down a row of trees growing wild and unkempt, and replaced them with young saplings; they have placed new palings around the park's border; and they have landscaped much of the outer edges, including adding some new tree trunk benches and some entrance paths.

The park is a nice, well-maintained grass area with a wire mesh cricket net at one end, a lot of trees on the Morawa Avenue side (there have been some spring-time incidents of swooping magpies in the past, but there is a council hotline to call if this happens), and a path that circumnavigates the entire area. It is on this path that my children learned to ride their bikes.



The park is well-used, which is something good to see. Often of an evening you will see people kicking a football, trying their hand at cricket in the net, jogging around the path, throwing a baseball, a little bit of everything.

If you're in the area and have some time to kill and the children are a bit beyond playgrounds, this is not a bad spot to do some sporting activities without the feeling of being on display.
