Silvan Reservoir Park

The Silvan Reservoir Park is adjacent to the Silvan Reservoir, 40 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

The Reservoir supplies water via large underground pipelines to storage facilities nearer to the city.

The Park incorporates a beautiful and carefully maintained picnic ground, as well as several interesting walking tracks.

The Reservoir was built in the period 1928-1931, and some artifacts from the original construction have been preserved, including part of the former concrete aqueduct and the Stilling Basin.

The Stonyford Creek Nature Trail, which starts at the picnic ground, is a short, 1 km circuit walk through protected forest and fern gullies.

I visited the Park on February 24, 2009.
