  • Beautiful open spaces carved up by an intricate network of pathways to take you to each corner and center of the surrounds. Watch out for the Alfred Hospital air rescue chopper over head. Otherwise it's peaceful! Great dog happy hour on weekends and 5.30pm weekdays.
  • A beautiful park. Sports grounds, well maintained paths and very well established and old trees to provide shade in the summer heat.
  • Love it so so much. Love seeing dogs running around freely and people of all ages playing sport. A great park to bring my little one for a walk too
  • Well maintained open parkland with rest rooms, kids play area and plenty of space for sports, exercise, or just relaxing.
  • Wonderful park. Great for a run and large team program

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
