Help turn our land into active community spaces for everyone to enjoy

We know that finding spaces for community use are few and far between. But across Melbourne, we manage 33 thousand hectares of land, the equivalent of around 60 thousand footy ovals!

Our Space Your Place is an initiative dedicated to changing the way communities and local groups use Melbourne Water spaces. Incorporated groups are invited to apply to use our land to enhance neighbourhood health and wellbeing.

Bring your project ideas to life

Over the course of 3 years, we will help support community groups to transform three sites across Greater Melbourne through the delivery of our Community Land Start Up Packages, the first of which was Merlynston Creek Park.

We know there is a need for community spaces for exercise, relaxation, interaction and connection to local waterways, nature and neighbourhoods. Why not use our land to benefit your local community!
