In 2018, the Victorian Government committed to create the new Jacksons Creek Regional Parklands near Sunbury in Melbourne’s north-west.

These parklands are being created to provide benefits for the environment as well as the community.

The Victorian Government has provided $154 million to deliver the Suburban Parks Program, to create more than 6,500 hectares of new and upgraded parks and trails. This will include the creation of the new 1,008-hectare Jacksons Creek Regional Parklands stretching from Diggers Rest to north of Emu Bottom Wetlands in Sunbury along Jacksons Creek.

This project will deliver the Jacksons Creek Regional Parklands Plan. We welcome community feedback on the vision and priorities for the parklands.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung as the Traditional Owners of the land known as Jacksons Creek biik wurrdha Regional Parklands and pays respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

The Wurundjeri Woiwurrung hold strong custodial responsibility to protect the Jacksons Creek biik wurrdha Cultural Landscape for future generations to enjoy.

How to participate

We are inviting the community to help shape the new linear parklands – tell us what you think they offer the community, what makes them special, and what will attract people to visit.

People can participate online via Engage Victoria, by filling in our survey, providing a submission or attending an online community information session.

We encourage you to read the factsheet to learn about the opportunities and priorities for these exciting new parklands before completing the survey below.

Next steps

This is the first stage of engagement. There will be further engagement on the Jacksons Creek Regional Parklands Plan in March–April 2022.

A summary report of the feedback will be published on this web page 6 weeks after each consultation stage including a description of how feedback will be considered in the draft parklands plan.
