This open space was probably once just that but now the road runs through it & one side is very built up with apartments & holiday rentals. Car are vying for parking meters but at least it's a green space close to the main streets

Colley Reserve is nicely groomed with Towering Pine trees and has an adjacent fun park and just metres from fabulous Glenelg Beach. In an area surrounded by highrise apartments it relieves the "closed in" feeling

Pleasant enough but really only a public green area with a few trees dotted around. Obviously better than concrete or tarmac but nothing all that special.

Children need a space to run? Colley Reserve is perfect for children to race, run, stretch and roll down the slopes. A terrific place to shake that extra sand off with a walk or run after leaving the beach.

I am glad this area was never allowed to be developed for more housing and Apartment development. There is always a function, gathering or something on and you can meet with family and friends creating your own activity.
