Master Plan for Cardinia Creek Parklands (North)
Parks Victoria has commenced working on a master plan to establish a new 217 hectare park on the west side of Cardinia Creek, in Berwick. A draft master plan has been displayed for community comment and those comments are now being considered and incorporated into a final plan.
This park will form part of the larger Cardinia Creek Parklands concept, in which over 405 hectares of open space along the Cardinia Creek from Harkaway to Beaconsfield are being linked as parkland.
Currently there is no formal public access to the park area. The development of a master plan represents the first major stage of transformation from farm land to park land.
The master plan will be based on based on the objectives articulated in the Cardinia Creek Parklands Future Directions Plan 2002.

Community feedback on the draft master plan
The comments period for the Cardinia Creek Parklands (North) Draft Master Plan has now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided comments and submissions. The planning team is currently incorporating the feedback from consultation.
During consultation local equestrian clubs signalled that they would like improved access to the park. A twenty hectare ride out area will be provided on grazing land in the north-east part of the park. A circuit will be established in the northern sector and links will be created to the horse trails provided by the City of Casey in Farm Lane and Beaumont Road.
For further information about this draft plan please contact Parks Victoria on 13 1963.
The park extends west from Cardinia Creek (Melway Reference: 111 J6). The majority of the site lies to the north of Inglis Road, and a section of the site lies to the south of Inglis Road opposite Edwin Flack Reserve.
