Greenvale Reservoir is an off-stream water storage dam in northern Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is situated in the upper Yuroke Creek catchment, the major tributary of the Moonee Ponds Creek. It is in the north of the suburb of Greenvale and to the west of Roxburgh Park.

The Greenvale Reservoir Park contains picnic tables, a playground, and barbecues, and is managed by Parks Victoria. It lies to the south and west of the dam. The dam is managed by Melbourne Water and was opened 18 April 1973.[1]
