CREATING A GREAT NEW LOCAL PARK ALONG CARDINIA CREEK

A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will build a massive new park along the Cardinia Creek to make sure local families have access to a great park.                     

Cardinia Creek South Parkland will be more than 250 times the size of the MCG, spanning from Harkaway all the way to Clyde North.

The new park, to be designed in consultation with local councils, will give families in Clyde, Officer, Narre Warren, Berwick and beyond a fantastic new space to enjoy the great outdoors.

It’s part of Labor’s plan to create dozens of new parks across the state, equivalent to more than 170 Royal Botanic Gardens, for the suburbs that need them the most.

This unprecedented investment will turn Victoria into the parks capital of Australia and ensure that every Victorian has a great local park, no matter where they live.  

The Liberals are putting the interests of developers first, with plans to fast track 290,000 new homes in and one million people into our city’s outer suburbs without the public transport, hospitals, schools or parks that communities need.

Only Labor will make sure our city retains its place as one of the world’s best places to live.

Labor will invest $150 million to create more than 6,500 hectares of parkland and new walking and bike trails right across Melbourne, giving families great places to spend a day off.

This includes $10 million to help local councils upgrade underutilised suburban space and local parks with new playgrounds, landscaping, toilets and picnic facilities, transforming them into better places for locals to enjoy.
