A new park funded by the Victorian Government is on the way for Clyde, and locals can now have their say on what it will look like.
The new Clyde Regional Park is one of three new suburban parks and two upgrades delivering 1000 hectares of green space for Melbourne’s western and south-eastern suburbs.
The parks are part of the Victorian Government’s $154 million Suburban Parks Program, which will create more than 6500 hectares of new and upgraded, accessible green space across Melbourne’s fastest-growing areas.
Clyde Regional Park will help improve health and wellbeing for people in Clyde; connect the community, and be a valuable place for socialising, fun and exercise. It will protect native plants and animals, important local conservation areas and creeks, create jobs and increase climate change resilience.
Once complete, these scenic and environmentally important areas will offer people a range of recreational activities such as walking and cycling tracks, tourism and education opportunities.
The Clyde community can share their ideas and feedback from 14 May to 27 June 2021 on what they want to see in the park. These ideas will help set priorities and plans for what the parks will offer the community and how they will be developed in the coming years.
“This is a fantastic project for Clyde, and I’m delighted everyone can have a say about what they want the new park to look like,” Bass MP Jordan Crugnale said.
“The park will be a huge boost for health and wellbeing in our community and indeed across Melbourne. We’re protecting our environment, native animals and plants, and creating a great new place for all of us to enjoy, relax and unwind.”
