Healthy Parks Healthy People
There’s nothing better for your wellbeing than getting out and enjoying the best of what nature has to offer.
Breathe the fresh air and enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of nature around you.
Our parks are everywhere – from the most remote locations to right in the heart of the city, so you can choose to stay close to home or venture further afield to enjoy them.
Whether you’re looking for the exhilaration of reaching the top of a mountain after a challenging climb, a place to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends, or a tranquil space to unwind, Victoria’s wonderful parks have something for everyone.
The evidence is clear and far-reaching. Spending time in the natural environment – in places like parks - is good for your mind, body and soul.
Parks are free and they are for everyone. Why not explore a park today? Not only will it feel good, it will be good for you too.
