  • Well manicured garden with plenty birds and great facilities. This place would be serene if not for the current constructions on the river but nonetheless a wonderful walk and beautiful nature...

  • Enjoyed walking around these manageable sized gardens and admiring the sub-tropical trees and plants that we cannot grow in Melbourne.

  • Shady, cool park with an amazing selection of native and introduced species - well worth a visit just to see the old fig trees. Well maintained grass areas to sprawl on with a good book or a picnic. Plenty of seating if you don't fancy the grass. Lots of 🦆🦆🦇🦇🦜🦜 and 🦎🦎Dogs are welcome🐕. Very chilled, small market on Sundays with great veggie stall and great coffee spot.
  • Setup as more of a path with gardens then a garden with paths.
