I took my own children here and now have 6 grandchildren I would love to take there. Visited it but it looked desolate and could only find shut gates. Very disappointed as in our area there is minimal farm activity for chn. I also found the kiosk at Brimbank Park requiring a great deal of improvement. What is happening in Keilor?

Hi! Is there any person that I can contact to speak to at parks Victoria about Horseshoe Bend farm. I am a local who has a fantastic proposition for the site which would benefit all parties including the local community. Just hoping it is not too late. Admin - Katia, you would need to contact Parks Victoria on 13 1963
