Shaping our Future



Parks Victoria’s vision is to be a world-class park service ensuring healthy parks for healthy people. 

These words clearly state what we want to achieve; it is our ultimate goal. By successfully delivering our vision, we believe that Victoria’s parks will be healthy and resilient, fundamental to the daily lives of Victorians, and treasured as places of enjoyment, learning and inspiration.

The Shaping Our Future strategy was developed drawing on the knowledge and experience of our people and partners. It is a living document that will help guide our priorities and how we engage with our partners and the community.

In delivering our vision, Parks Victoria will focus on the following themes:

Connecting People and Parks – We will forge strong partnerships with people to conserve Victoria’s special places and make them accessible to all.

Conserving Victoria’s Special Places – We will aim to ensure that our valued parks, and the natural assets and cultural heritage they hold, can be enjoyed now and by future generations.

Providing Benefits Beyond Park Boundaries – We will work with the community, businesses and partners, under government guidance, to plan and collectively achieve great outcomes for Victoria’s magnificent parks and the landscapes they are located within.

Enhancing Organisational Excellence – We will constantly strive to be an innovative, world-class park service. We will continue to undertake new research, be responsive to change, and seek out advances in technology that allow us to plan, deliver and perform to a world-class standard.
