Yarra Park

The view from Yarra Park towards Gate 2 at the MCG.Yarra Park has a significant indigenous pre-history, and is also noted for both its landscape and sporting heritage, dating back to the 1850s.

In recent years, the grounds and trees in Yarra Park have deteriorated in condition due to Melbourne’s continued drought.

Urgent attention, especially through the harvesting and application of non-potable Class A water, is required to restore the health of Yarra Park.

In September 2009, the MCC reached agreement with the State Government to transfer the management of Yarra Park to the MCG Trust, who in turn have delegated operational management to the MCC. This took effect on March 15, 2010.

A key water recycling project and landscape upgrade will secure the future of the trees in the park.
