About the park

This 120-hectare park in south-east Melbourne will be an exciting new destination for communities in and around Clyde.

There will be accessible areas for healthy outdoor activities and a focus on providing protection for native plants and animals. Refreshing, cool, shady spaces will help address the challenges of climate change.

We plan to enhance the Clyde Creek and surrounds for recreation and help protect biodiversity in the former Koo Wee Rup swampland.

Where will the park be located?

The new park will be co-located with the Clyde Park Sports Precinct. Together they will create one large community space for relaxation and activities. Melbourne Water also plans to add further area by reserving neighbouring land for drainage.
