Urban Parks Active Wellbeing Program

Parks play an important role in boosting the health and wellbeing of local communities across Victoria. These open green spaces help connect people with nature, and provide opportunities for recreation, relaxation and spending time with friends and family.

The Urban Parks Active Wellbeing Program is a $21 million project funded by the Victorian Government, delivering upgrades to 21 parks across Melbourne, to ensure they continue to support healthy communities.

The project will deliver:

  • New and upgraded visitor facilities such as picnic shelters and tables, toilets, trails, carparks, BBQs, playground equipment and signage at 18 of Melbourne’s popular urban parks.
  • An extension of the iconic Bay Trail at Point Cook, building the missing link between Williamstown and Point Cook Coastal Park to provide a continuous off-road journey for walkers, runners and cyclists.
  • Repairs to the historic seawall at Point Gellibrand Coastal Heritage Park, to make the wall and promenade safe for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
