Manningham has one of the largest networks of open space in metropolitan Melbourne covering approximately 17 per cent of the municipality and including more than 300 parks. This includes recreation parks, sporting reserves, natural areas and neighbourhood parks.
Our unique natural environment provides a sanctuary to 56 threatened animal species and is home to 22 per cent of Victoria’s known plants, including 11 species of state significance and four species of national significance. A large section of the eastern half of Manningham is designated as a ‘Green Wedge’ area for the protection of our natural and rural environment.
Manningham also partnered with with Resilient Melbourne, The Nature Conservancy and state and other local governments to launch a new metropolitan wide urban forest strategy for Melbourne called Living Melbourne: our metropolitan urban forest.
