The Kilsyth Recreation Reserve is located on Colchester Road behind the Churinga shopping area. A draft master plan has been developed to guide the improvements in this area over the next 15 years. This plan has been informed by initial community consultation in late 2019 and ongoing discussions with stakeholders.

The draft Master Plan aims to maximise future use of the reserve by sporting clubs and the community by upgrading existing facilities and improving the range of the activities at the reserve.
