Higgins Park is a large, beautiful, public green space in the Town of Victoria Park. The park is a constant hive of activity with a diverse range of park users currently sharing the green open space it offers. It is currently under threat of development, as the council is considering putting in at least one artificial hockey turf, which will restrict the use of the space for passive and informal recreation and also potentially relocate the existing Junior AFL club that has called the park home, and shared it with local users since 1953.
The Friends of Higgins Park are campaigning to ToVP Council to keep this beautiful park as a public open space for all users, passive exercisers, dog walkers, exercise groups, children and sporting groups.
They support the Vic Park Hockey Club’s aspiration to have an artificial turf to play on, but we are campaigning to encourage the council to seek alternative locations.
