About the parklands

We are planning to connect existing parks and reserves from Seaford to Mornington to create a linked recreational space for local communities and visitors.

The proposed linked parklands will help protect native plants and animals and offer more opportunities for people to enjoy healthy outdoor activities.

Where are the parklands?

The parklands sit within the traditional lands of the Bunurong. Linking existing parks will create parklands stretching from Seaford to Mornington, approximately 30–40 kilometres south east of Melbourne’s CBD.

When can I visit the parklands?

You can visit existing parks now. Frankston to Mornington Parklands is a complex project requiring extensive planning and consultation. The linked parklands will open in stages depending on planning progress.
