About the park

The updated Strategic Directions Plan for the 110-hectare park considers ways to improve park access and amenities, identifies opportunities for infrastructure upgrades, and protections for native plants and endangered animals. This includes critical habitats for the growling grass frog.

Parks Victoria is leading the project, and the park is currently managed by Melton City Council. Initial infrastructure upgrades are being completed by Melton City Council.

Further infrastructure upgrades to the park are subject to further funding and will be over several years and involve stages of community consultation.
