Celebrating A Greener Camberwell

Mr Kennedy, Member for Hawthorn, and Nina Taylor, Member for the Southern Metropolitan region, attended an event held at Ignite Café in Camberwell on 13 May to celebrate the $1.76 million dollars the Andrews Labor Government is providing towards the creation of the Camberwell Green project.

The creation of extra parkland in Camberwell Junction has long been advocated by local residents and community groups and has become more pressing in recent years as more people move into the area. The funding will go towards a new sensory garden and landscaping that will extend Camberwell Primary School’s play area across a current car park near the City of Boroondara council buildings.

The Camberwell Green project has been a collaboration with the Government, the Camberwell Primary School community and other groups including the Camberwell Green and Camberwell Junction Residents Association, who are to be congratulated for their strenuous and continuing advocacy.

As more people make Camberwell home, the much needed extra parkland will be of benefit to not only Camberwell Primary School, but for the whole community.
