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 and 2 years ago we celebrated our 25th Anniversary.

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

        park planning and development

        tree planting

        seed collection and plant propagation

        bird counting

        salinity monitoring

        water quality testing, and

        monitoring bats and possums
