CREATING A GREAT NEW LOCAL PARK FOR KOROROIT
A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will build a brand new park around Kororoit Creek, making sure that thousands of families have access to a great local park to take their kids.
Kororoit Creek Park will be more than 130 times the size of the MCG, between Caroline Springs and Rockbank, north of the Western Freeway.
The new park, to be designed in consultation with the Melton City Council, will give families in Caroline Springs, Rockbank, Truganina 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 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.
