The Olinda Precinct Project will transform the 34-hectare former Olinda golf course site into public parklands and will include:

  • A nature-based play space
  • The ‘Olinda Green’, which will feature a sports oval and open space for markets and events
  • A dog off-lead zone
  • Walking tracks
  • Picnic facilities, including shelters and seating
  • Upgraded carpark

The picturesque site is directly adjacent to the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden (formerly the National Rhododendron Garden) and the RJ Hamer Arboretum and will provide local residents and visitors with recreation and sporting opportunities.

The project will retain the unique character of Olinda, while integrating additional open spaces and facilities to support the needs of the Olinda and Hilltop communities.
