Liveable Places and Spaces

Our beautiful parks and reserves are among our most treasured parts of Manningham, with almost 20 per cent of the entire city occupied by greenery and space for leisure and recreation.

Now we have developed a Parks Improvement Program to lay out a plan that prioritises the future renewal and upgrade of over 300 parks and reserves in Manningham over the next 20 years.

We will be investing an average of $5 million annually on improving our parks and open spaces.

In addition to improving existing parks and facilities, we are also planning a significant number of new parks or extensions to current parks to cater for the growth in population, decreasing private open space and to create walking linkages between our trails. These new parks will gradually be developed to include new playspaces, picnic and barbecue areas, paths, shared trails and revegetation.
