The Ivanhoe Grammar School proposes a new road into their site from The Boulevard . At some pint it appears to be 4 lanes wide with turning and entrance lanes from both directions, the removal of several trees proposed within the site AND along The Boulevard SCENIC TOURIST ROUTE . The Road is to access a 50 space carpark below a new sports stadium to be used in both school hours and after hours including weekends . The Boulevard is designed as a Yarra Valley scenic route and is very narrow and winding with low sun glare and fogs affecting driveabilty at various times of the year ( it runs approximately east west in this location ) It also has a new contingent of both recreational and commuter bike riders as that sport has become more popular. The Boulevard has median splinter islands to separate traffic at Hazardous locations where there have been previous serious accidents . The Ivanhoe Grammar school proposes removing one of these to allow for the ingress and egress road.  Its own consultants  have rated the traffic hazard at the location in several respects as HIGH

The Traffic reposrt and all other Development Plan documents put forward by the school are on Banyule Councils webpage and can be read there or downloaded

I have heard it is closely and extensively guarded by security guards - I have seen them nearby - but have not spoken to them myself- ED

Has anyone else been told by security to stop using south grounds / main oval recently. It was previously available to local residents before fences went up?

HI Jess / sorry for my late reply: Indigenous history is a bit guarded -as sites could be damaged if they were published. Call me 0427949951 for some tips.

Hi there, I was wondering if, beyond the scouts history, there is any information about the indigenous use/history of Wilson Reserve. Would love to know more.
