The Andrews Labor Government has released the final Park Layout Plan for a transformed Healesville Freeway Reserve, paving the way for major upgrade works to commence in 2024.

As promised, we’re getting on and transforming 35 hectares of underutilised space at Healesville Freeway Reserve into beautiful parklands, with the Andrews Government committing $10.5 million to make this revitalisation a reality.

The final Park Layout Plan builds on a draft published on the Engage Victoria website, and includes improvements based on community feedback received during earlier consultation.

The Park Layout Plan includes a 3.5km shared use path to encourage people to become more active, with water taps, seating and wayfinding signage. A beginners-level pump track for cyclists is set to be created, too.

The upgraded Healesville Freeway Reserve will also give the community in Forest Hill and Vermont new places to gather with a playground, picnic area and bbq facilities for all to enjoy. Parks Victoria is also working closely with Nadrasca to create a sensory garden, too, ensuring the new parklands are truly accessible to Victorians of all abilities.

Additionally, the Park Layout Plan includes great wins for animals with an off-lead dog park for local furry friends and major investment in improved habitat to foster biodiversity of native fauna.

For more information on the Park Layout Plan, visit the Engage Victoria website.

The Andrews Labor Government is proud to be doing what matters in Glen Waverley District by delivering better open space for our community to enjoy.
