  • Not as pretty as Botanical gardens it is regardless Great park to walk or run around the tan. Easy access to public transport and toilets and gazebos or benches to sit in shade
  • Beautifully maintained gardens that provide an appropriately peaceful buffer around the Shrine of Remembrance.
  • A great spot to get away from the city and go for a walk or run around the tan track at just over 3.8 km. A number of toilets located within and easy access to public transport. Plenty of events happen either in the botanical gardens or at Sydney Myer's music bowl so it is well worth a visit.
  • Place is awesome. Fresh air and nature is out there to grab and take
  • Even on a cold Melbourne Autumn day it's still a beautiful place to visit
