Under the Suburban Parks Program, the Victorian Government is establishing three new Regional Parks in Melbourne’s growth areas.
A further investment will renew the planning for two regional parks and conduct some early establishment work in and around Melbourne’s western growth corridor.
This will mean:
- Creating the new Werribee Township Regional Park (340 hectares of new parkland in Wyndham Vale)
- Upgrading the Werribee River Regional Park (223 hectares of parkland to the south of Werribee).
Once complete, these scenic and environmentally important areas will provide over 1000 hectares offering a range of recreational activities such as walking and cycling tracks, and tourism and education opportunities.
From May to June 2021, Parks Victoria will be consulting with stakeholders and the community to understand aspirations for the future each park.
Key dates for engagement activities are:
- Wednesday 26 May
Online Community Information Session
6pm - 7.30pm
- Saturday 26 June
10am - 1pm
Feedback from stakeholders and community will help Parks Victoria draft (or refine) a Park Plan for each park. A summary of engagement results will be made publicly available once the consultation is completed.
Parks Victoria want to hear what you would like to see in these parks.

Consultation will be open until 4 July 2021.
