The MCC has advised there will be no car parking available in Yarra Park this Sunday, due to existing wet conditions and the forecast of more rain in the coming days.
It’s the second week in a row the car park has been closed due to wet conditions.
Above-average rainfall in Melbourne for the month of June, combined with more than 25mm of rain in the past 48 hours, has meant that the grassed areas are not in a condition to be able to safely accommodate vehicles without risking long-term damage to the park.
