Stanton Road Reserve is categorised as a Bushland/Conservation area. There are actually two Stanton Road Reserves, the most accessible at 68-70 Stanton Road and the other further up Stanton Road at number 187.
Bushland/Conservation areas are generally un-embellished and are protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. This means they are not accessible for normal recreation purposes, but more for protection of biodiversity and natural habitat.
History behind the name
Both reserves have been named after the road they are located on. Stanton Road, Smithfield Heights is named after the farmer who owned the property here.
