Community consultation is now open for the new Clyde Regional Park, with residents encouraged to have their say on the draft strategic directions plan, created by Parks Victoria.
Clyde Regional Park, which will be located opposite the Riverfield community, will span a total of 120 hectares once complete. Together with the planned Clyde Park Sports Precinct and adjacent drainage basin, it will create a huge community space where Riverfield residents can enjoy all manner of passive and active recreation activities. In total, the adjoining precincts will be three times bigger than the Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens and approximately half the size of the entire Cranbourne Botanic Gardens and bushland area!
The new regional park is an incredibly exciting addition to the Clyde area, providing a much-needed space where people can connect with nature and get active, with places to walk, run, ride, canoe and picnic! It will also serve local wildlife, providing a home for many local plants and animals.
Clyde Regional Park is being delivered as part of the Victorian Government’s $315 million Suburban Parks Program, which includes 6,500 hectares of new and upgraded parks across the state. The process to acquire the land necessary to establish Clyde Regional Park is currently underway, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed of all the latest updates as the project evolves.
