Open Space for Everyone


The Open Space for Everyone strategy has been developed to guide all levels of government in the planning, management and delivery of a quality open space network over the next 30 years.

It will achieve this by fostering a coordinated approach by state and local governments, Traditional Owner groups, communities, researchers and businesses to protect existing open space, apply innovation to make use of other types of public land, and create new metropolitan parks and trails.

The Victorian Government has already invested more than $230 million to reinforce Melbourne as the parks capital of Australia, including through the Suburban Parks Program.
