Moore Reserve
Nearest city Hurstville

Moore Reserve is a 14.2 hectare park surrounded by the Sydney suburbs of Oatley, Mortdale and Hurstville Grove. It is the second largest public space in the Municipality of Kogarah.

Originally part of the north west arm, Moore Reserve was created in the 1960s by infilling with mud dredged from Oatley Bay. At the time the existing natural waterway, Renown Creek, was destroyed and ultimately replaced by concrete pipes.

An artificial wetland was constructed in 2001 which uses natural processes to treat 95% of all stormwater runoff from the 125 hectare catchment before it enters Oatley Bay.


Moore Reserve has the following features:

  • A large parking area
  • Large open fields accommodating a variety of sporting activities
  • An outdoor fitness play set
  • A long path circumnavigating the park
  • Swing sets, climbing equipment and other children's play sets
  • Picnic tables and BBQ facilities
  • Lovely views of Oatley Bay, especially from the designated viewing platform
  • Waterfront access to Oatley Bay, including a boat ramp, jetty and small beach
