The Friends of Braeside Park was one of the earliest Friends groups which are now attached to all metropolitan and state parks.  It was formed in August 1989 a few months after the official opening of Braeside Park this year we celebrate our 32nd Birthday..

 The Friends Group works closely with the Parks Victoria Rangers and is actively involved in:

        park planning and development

        tree planting

        funding of tree carvings

        seed collection and plant propagation

        bird counting

        salinity monitoring

        water quality testing, and

        monitoring bats and possums

The Mornington Peninsula Freeway
The Freeway will be open in November this year.
This will greatly affect our Park as it runs adjacent to the lower section
near the Woodlands Estate
and Ranger station right near the Wetlands area. It will be close to the Park Office adjoining facilities
as well as the flora and fauna around the wetlands area in the Park.

We strongly opposed the development but are realistic enough to be involved in the
execution of the freeway to mitigate the effects on our beautiful environment.
