Visitors to Cardinia Reservoir Park will soon enjoy upgraded facilities as part of a major Victorian Government investment in Melbourne parks, with works commencing at Cardinia Reservoir Park this month.
The Urban Parks Active Wellbeing Program is delivering $21 million of upgrades at 21 parks to encourage more Melburnians to spend time outdoors and enjoy the benefits of being in nature.
The program will deliver new picnic tables, refurbished and upgraded picnic shelters and toilets, upgraded electric BBQs, replacement of playground equipment, improved signage, wider and more accessible pathways, trail and carpark repairs.
At Cardinia Reservoir Park, improvements at the Aura Vale, Crystal Brook and Kangaroo Flats picnic areas will include upgraded picnic tables, picnic shelters, drinking fountains, BBQs, toilets and signage, along with carpark repairs at the spillway carpark.
Parks Victoria has appointed Warrandale Industries to undertake works at Cardinia Reservoir Park, which are scheduled to start in October subject to on-ground conditions and any public health directions that may be in place. During the works there will be some temporary restrictions to access which will be indicated by park signage and also published on the Parks Victoria website.
As well as being essential community assets, parks across Melbourne typically attract visitors from further afield, including domestic and international tourists, making them important contributors to local business and the regional economy.
