The lakes are marvellous at any time of the day but at dusk and nightfall the sights are spectacular.
The Victorian Environmental Assessment Council’s much-awaited report on metropolitan parks was released on 8 August. The Friends of Westgate Park made a submission here and while not mentioned in the report the photo of Melbourne CBD with red gums in the foreground on the banner to the VEAC page, is taken from our Park!
We support VEAC’s recommendations and particularly like what the report says about biodiversity:
Biodiversity is intrinsically valuable in its own right. It is also essential for human existence, contributing to the healthy environments, clean air and water that support human life. This contribution is reflected in community attitudes towards nature, with natural habitats within urban areas generally highly valued by the local community. A key opportunity to enhance biodiversity, and also liveability,……. is to protect natural habitats on public land.
