The Victorian Government is investing $154 million to create more than 6,500 hectares of new and upgraded parks and trails in Melbourne’s growing, outer suburbs.
Community consultations for 3 of the new parks and two improved parks in Melbourne’s west and south-east will be held by Parks Victoria from 14 May to 27 June 2021.
The new parks include Kororoit Creek Regional Park, Werribee Township Regional Park and Clyde Regional Park. Improvements will be made to Werribee River Regional Park and Toolern Creek Regional Park.
The Suburban Parks Program team is working closely with Parks Victoria, public and private stakeholders, local communities and Traditional Owners to ensure the new parks meet the needs of local communities.
Register your interest in community consultations for the following parks on the Engage Victoria website:
- Kororoit Creek Regional Park consultation
- Werribee Township Regional Park consultation
- Clyde Regional Park consultation
Or email email@example.com to have your say or learn more.
The Suburban Parks Program is part of a 2018 election commitment to provide more green, open and accessible space for growing communities to enjoy. The parks will also help protect the natural environment for future generations.
Benefits of the new parks include:
- helping to improve community health and wellbeing
- protecting biodiversity
- increasing climate change resilience
- creating jobs
- strengthening cultural heritage.
