New ways for you to connect with nature

To create more opportunities for everyone to access parks and connect with nature, we’re creating 3 new parks and upgrading or expanding 12 large suburban parklands in Melbourne’s established and growing suburbs.

We are partnering with local governments, Traditional Owners, other government agencies and the community to deliver these parks.

The new and improved green open spaces will enhance liveability for local communities, protect our native plants and wildlife, and create jobs and investment in growing suburbs.

Creating 3 new parks

We’re establishing 3 new regional parks to give communities in Melbourne’s growing west and south-east suburbs more opportunities to connect with nature and for recreation.

These public open spaces will improve lifestyle options for local communities, help protect our native wildlife, increase climate change resilience, attract visitors and strengthen cultural heritage.

Expanded and improved parks coming soon

We’re also completing a feasibility study for a new regional park in Wallan .
