Tell us more about your idea…

The most recent Census highlighted that Hume residents are more likely to be experiencing long-term health conditions than the average Melburnian. With households facing increased costs of living, it is more important than ever that we look for low-cost options for improving our health and providing opportunities for residents to enjoy our great open spaces and parks.

Adding extra funding for more outdoor exercise stations in our parks and alongside our walking and cycling networks will help promote an active community, and provide free access to fitness to improve health outcomes.
