Park life in Brimbank

No matter what your age, stage of life or interests – Brimbank’s parks offer something for everyone.

And Brimbank Council’s Park Services team look after these public spaces to ensure they are attractive and inviting places for residents to relax and have fun. That has been more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic when our parks have become such an important place for our community to find peace.

The team of about 84 ground staff, arborists, gardeners, horticulturalists and specialised tradespeople, looks after seven flagship parks, 23 suburban parks, 120 neighbourhood parks and 100 local reserves. This also includes Brimbank’s Keilor Public Golf Course.

There are 13 separate Parks Services crews that work a total of about 94 hours daily across 123 km² of territory. They undertake a huge variety of work including pruning, mowing, planting, picking up litter, weeding, mulching garden beds, plantings, walkways and reserves maintenance, identifying hazards and park defects, and the list goes on.

An essential service during COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen many workplaces impacted, and as an essential service, Parks Services has also had to make changes in its work practices to ensure the safety of residents and staff.

It has been challenging and important to continue to maintain high standards of cleaning and maintenance at Brimbank’s parks. The team has been helped during the COVID-19 pandemic with some members of Leisure Services being redeployed to assist with park maintenance while Brimbank’s Leisure Centres have been temporarily closed.

All this hard work ensures that Brimbank’s parks are places that the community enjoy visiting and are proud to call their own.

So whether you want to walk the dog, or throw a ball, play, or catch up with family and friends – Brimbank’s park network gives its community great choices – both now and  after the COVID-19 pandemic ends.
