Silvan Reservoir Park


Volunteering in parks is a great way to contribute to conserving Victoria’s special places. The many personal benefits of volunteering include learning more about plants and wildlife, gaining new skills, being in the outdoors, improving health and well being and meeting new friends. Time spent in nature also reduces stress and promotes physical wellbeing.

    Following the 2021 storm events, Parks Victoria is partnering with other government agencies to support recovery efforts on public land. In the Silvan and Olinda areas, VicForest will remove debris and treat hazardous trees to reduce the bushfire risk and enable safe and rapid response to emergencies. Works will also re-establish safe public access and allow the forest to regenerate. Environmental and cultural values are being identified and managed during this process. For your safety please observe signage, do not enter work sites and beware of machinery and trucks.

    Silvan Reservoir Storm Recovery Works

    Following the June 2021 storms, Parks Victoria is partnering with other government agencies to support recovery efforts on public land.
    In the Silvan Reservoir catchment, Melbourne Water is clearing debris and removing logs to reduce fuel loads. Due to the size and number of fallen trees, large machinery and trucks are needed to undertake this important work. For your safety, please observe signage and do not enter work sites.
    All works are being carried out to minimise the impact on environmental and cultural values. For more information visit the Melbourne Water storm debris removal in Silvan Reservoir page.
