Reservoir is close to Northland Shopping Centre, Preston Market, Sydney Road shops and restaurants and one of three remaining drive-in cinemas in Melbourne, the Village in Coburg. The area is experiencing unprecedented growth; with plenty of new developments, it is also very popular with young home-buyers looking for a 'still affordable' inner city lifestyle.

The area is serviced by four railway stations: Reservoir, Regent, Keon Park, and Ruthven and multiple bus routes. The West Preston tram route also ends at the south end of the suburb.

Reservoir is conveniently located 12 km north of the Melbourne CBD, with easy access to Northern/Western Ring Rd, Hume Highway/Freeway, Tullamarine & Calder Freeways and Eastern Freeway.

The people from Reservoir call themselves Reservorians. The nickname for Reservoir is Resa.
