Melbourne’s oldest park is Flagstaff Gardens, originally established in 1862. Located in an area steeped in history, the park includes a memorial marking the graves of the city’s first European settlers. The sprawling gardens form an important ecological area, which includes mature Morton Bay figs, elms, and eucalyptus trees. Extensive lawns and well-maintained rose and shrub beds are lined by these old trees, which shade long pathways enjoyed by picnickers, walkers, and cyclists. Get some exercise at the park’s tennis courts, which can be used for a number of sports, such as volleyball, handball, and netball. Electric barbecues are available to visitors all year long. Our Melbourne trip builder website makes visiting Flagstaff Gardens and other Melbourne attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Flagstaff Gardens Reviews
整備された緑の多い公園ですが、フィッツロイ ガーデンやキングス ドメインのようにモニュメントや記念館などは無く、ゆったりとした公園風景でした。 北西側に行くとセントジェームズ旧大聖堂が出てきます。 more »It was a well-maintained green park, but there were no monuments or memorials like Fitzroy Gardens or Kings Domain, and it was a laid-back park. If you go to the northwest side, you will find St. James's Old Cathedral.
Another one of Melbourne's many parks and gardens. Quite nice, and a good place to spend a lunch hour. Still, there are much better gardens to explore. more »
Beautiful park for walking, watch for rats if you're planning to have a picnic there.
A patch of green in the CBD. Nice place to have a quiet lunch in the sun.
