Residents of the fast-growing Werribee community are set to benefit from the major transformation of Wyndham Park, made possible through support from the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Werribee Tim Pallas today declared the redeveloped Wyndham Park open to the public.

This major redevelopment has transformed Wyndham Park into a recreation and events space of regional significance, facilitating community events, exercise, relaxation and play opportunities – delivering social, economic and environmental benefits to the local community.

Completed works include a river trail with walking and cycling paths, event lawn, activity spine, river terraces, tables, seating, drinking fountains, new pathways and boardwalks, viewing areas, improved lighting and revegetation works.

The redevelopment will improve connections between the park, river and Werribee City Centre, making it a place for the entire community to enjoy.

The Andrews Labor Government committed $3.2 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund towards the $13.6 million redevelopment.

The Growing Suburbs Fund is a $250 million investment over five years in critical local infrastructure in Melbourne’s diverse and fast-growing outer suburbs.

Since 2015, Wyndham City Council has received more than $25 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund to support the delivery of 19 priority projects across the municipality.
