The upgrade of Point Malcolm Reserve has been a positive change for the community, with the popularity far exceeding expectations.

The upgraded facilities and play spaces have become a destination for parties, picnics and large events utilising these new and enhanced features. The redevelopment of the reserve included two new playspaces, to focus on junior and senior play, fitness equipment, a full sized basketball court, new picnic facilities, and increased turf space.

The separation of junior and senior playspaces gives children an independence and progression within their play. The inclusion of fitness equipment, a full basketball court and new lighting with the existing tennis courts, has encouraged the area to be a community recreational precinct. To withstand the harsh coastal conditions a selection of local native and hardy introduced plant species were chosen throughout the reserve.

This dramatic change of the space has seen an influx of people using the reserve more regularly and has changed Point Malcolm Reserve into a regional destination.
