CREATING MORE GREAT PARK SPACE FOR FRANKSTON

A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will create more green open space than ever before in Frankston, making sure local families have access to a great local park.               

The Frankston Greenbelt has been talked about for a long time, now we’re getting on and delivering it.

A re-elected Labor Government will do the planning work to connect 1,881 hectares of parks and reserves for locals to enjoy between the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands and Mornington.       

It will look at how best to link the Edithvale-Seaford wetlands, Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve, Studio Park, Dame Elizabeth Arboretum, Cruden Farm, Langwarrin Flora and Fauna, Baxter Park, Sages Cottages, Moorooduc Quarry and Devilbend Natural Features Reserve.  

The much-loved Seaford wetlands will get a $5 million package of landscaping and environmental works, with upgrades to walking paths and facilities.

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.
