Parks are important
They connect people with nature and with each other, improving health and wellbeing as well as building community connection. They are also good for:
- the health of our environment
- protecting our unique biodiversity
- our creeks and rivers
- making a positive contribution towards tackling climate change
Creating new parks
The Victorian Government’s $154 million investment into the state’s parklands will see us developing over 6,500 hectares of new and revitalised parkland, covering an area more than 12,000 times the size of the MCG, across greater Melbourne.
This is about creating new parks in our growing outer suburbs and expanding and connecting existing ones, making Melbourne the parkland capital of Australia.
