Canadian Regional Park
The Bill to establish the “Canadian Regional Park” passed the upper house of the Victorian Parliament at 9.50pm on Thursday night March 24th 2016.
The Park now exists, the boundaries have been secured and Parks Victoria will now be responsible for the future management of the Forest and ex plantation areas.
It is expected that the Minister will conduct an official opening and declaration of the Park sometime in early May.
Many thanks to the hundreds of friends and local supporting groups who contributed their imagination, wishes, ideas, knowledge and support in order to convince the Andrews Government to bring about the creation of this “Canadian Regional Park”
Here is an image of the WIN TV interviewing Blake Gordon about the benefits of the new “Canadian Regional Park” in the park, on Good Friday March 25th.
