The community is invited to have their say on the draft Strategic Directions plan for the new Werribee Township Regional Park.

The plans set the long-term vision and priorities for the park, which is one of the parks brought to life as part of the Victorian Government’s $315 million Suburban Parks Program.

Community members are invited to share their feedback on the draft plan for the new Werribee Township Regional Park from 9 April to 15 May through surveys available on Engage Victoria, participating in an online session or by speaking to the Parks Victoria team when they pop-up around the community during March and April.

The new Werribee Township Regional Park will be a 340-hectare park located in Tarneit and Wyndham Vale, sitting on both Wadawurrung and Bunurong Country.

The plans propose facilities including picnic and BBQ areas, public toilets, a network of walking trails, nature play facilities, large gathering spaces, a canoe launch, café and opportunities for bird watching and community education activities.

The park’s natural setting will enable the surrounding communities to step out of the urban landscape and connect with nature and will provide opportunities for active recreation, socialisation, education and connection to waterways. The park will also nurture and enhance a diverse ecosystem of wetland and waterways as a great habitat for the endangered Growling Grass Frog and unique birdlife.

The Strategic Directions Plans for the park has been developed using feedback and ideas received during community consultation in 2021. The draft Werribee Township Regional Park plan will be finalised using input from the community during this consultation period and released later this year.

The park will help improve health and wellbeing; increase community connectivity and decrease social isolation; protect creek corridors, conservation areas and native flora and fauna; create jobs and increase climate change resilience.

The community can also have their say on draft plans for new regional parks at Clyde and Kororoit Creek.

The Suburban Parks Program is creating more than 6,500 hectares of new and upgraded parks, tracks and open space, aiming to provide more opportunities for Melburnians to exercise and connect with nature and their community.
