- Wyndham Park, Werribee
Entry via Wedge St Piazza, Watton St Werribee
The newly renovated Wyndham Park is ready to welcome you! Located on the banks of the picturesque Werribee River, this major, $13 million Wyndham City project has transformed the park into a recreation and events hub in the heart of the City Centre.
As well as delivering a range of new attractions including playgrounds, exercise equipment, picnic facilities, walking tracks and improved cycling paths, the upgrade also provides an opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the Werribee River and surrounding environment, including additional tress and plants.
You’ll notice that access through Comben Drive isn’t open at the moment. We’re just putting the finishing touches to this section and look forward to opening it in the coming months.

Why is there a fence still up near Comben Drive?

Why did you do this?
Wyndham Park is in a prime location, on the banks of the Werribee River, close to a train station and bus interchange, in the heart of the Werribee City Centre. The redevelopment has transformed Wyndham Park into a regional attraction. The improvements will make the park a place where people love to be and create a new venue for community events. This will benefit the Wyndham community and enhance the Werribee City Centre.
Does it have a playground?
Yes, Wyndham Park is home to two playgrounds.
The adventure playground features an 11 metre tower with a spiral slide down from the top of the tower, climbing structures, small see-saws, spinning wheels, and more.
Is the slide metal?
Yes, the slide is an enclosed metal tube. This was the best option to avoid any vandalism to the slide. The entire tower is fire-proof.
Is there a skate park?
While there is no dedicated skate area at Wyndham Park, there are skateable elements throughout the park. If you’re after a skate park in Wyndham, we recommend heading to Baden Powell Drive Reserve in Tarneit, which is home to a regional level skate, BMX and scooter park. There is also a skate park at Hoppers Crossing Youth Resource Centre. The Point Cook Skate Park is also currently undergoing an upgrade – be sure to drop in when it opens after March 2020.
Is there be an off-lead dog park?
The park is dog-friendly, and people are more than welcome to bring their dog to Wyndham Park. There is no dedicated off-lead area, so if you do decide to bring your dog, it’s important they are on a leash. For information on spaces across Wyndham that your dog can be off a leash, visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au and search ‘Dog Off Lead Areas’.
Is there be CCTV at the park?
Safety is an important part of the design and operation of Wyndham Park. In consultation with Police and the Werribee City Centre Safety Group, it is agreed that clear site lines, lots of activity, good lighting, good maintenance and regular Police patrols are the most effective ways to keep a place safe. CCTV may be used to supplement this in specific circumstances for events and asset protection.
Are there toilets onsite?
Yes, a new centrally located public toilet block has been constructed to ensure visitors don’t have to leave the park to use the bathroom. Extra toilets can be added for events.
Can I hold an activity in the park?
Yes, you can. To find out more contact firstname.lastname@example.org
