# Things to do
The area to the west of Berwick-Cranbourne Road is mostly within the Urban Growth Boundary, with a residential development known as "Cascades On Clyde" and several others, under construction, having begun in late 2007.
Parks Victoria are also investigating the creation of a new regional park, on land bounded by Berwick-Cranbourne and Thompson Roads.
The area of Clyde North to the east of the newly built suburban area, roughly 1 kilometre east of Berwick-Cranbourne Road, is classed as Green wedge land, is distinctly rural in nature, and is outside of the main growth corridor. The land is used in this area for a mixture of market gardening (notably around Pattersons Road) and dairy farming. The land is mainly flat, and most of the roads in the area are dirt roads maintained by the City of Casey.
A new lifestyle centre was recently opened in late 2019, with a Bunnings Warehouse as the first store, followed by a few others, and now even contains an Aldi supermarket.
