Council checked the Reserve in 2011 and found the fuel load acceptable.
||This Reserve was part of a larger property. There is a pad down the right side of the Reserve where the old house stood. Remnants of old crockery have can sometimes be found there. Also near the front on Stonegate Road, there is a cement slab which covers an old well.

2013 - City of Armadale's Bush Crew now work in the Reserve. Roleybushcare liases with them.
The front of the Reserve was very bare when we first started working here and the ground was covered in weeds. The area has been planted with seedlings native to this area and the ground in between was covered with mulch. Slowly the seedlings have grown and now the front looks wonderful. We continue to fill in the bare areas each winter with new plants.
The middle of the Reserve needs lots of work removing weeds and replanting.
The very back of the Reserve is quite good where there is more denser vegetation and not as many weeds.
2005-Weeds out of control this year so more work needed. All seedlings planted are local species sourced from an accredited nursery.
2009 - Starting to make progress. Weeds are down and seedlings are starting to survive.
Neighbours help out.
Ian and Jamie Colquhoun.One of our lovely local families helping out.
Willis Family who are wonderful neighbours of the Reserve.
2012 fire made us all aware of the important of fuel loads in the Reserve so in October of that year, Roleybushcare was approached by some of the neighbouring families with their concerns. We all decided to clear most of the dead shrubs in the Reserve to lower the fire hazard.
This was done with the approval of the City's Environment Officer who also arranged for the huge pile of wood to be removed by the City of Armadale.
The Reserve looked great and everyone was happy.
