Like most parks this is a great place to sit and relax. It really feels like you are on holiday when sitting here and out of the city

Nice little park kept neat and tidy. Great for a picnic and it has a nice park for the children. Sometimes there is also pony rides there. Toilets could be kept a bit cleaner and appealing to use.

The quieter end of St. Kilda beach. Good for walking and talking. Stroll, relax and enjoy. Watch the kite surfers!

Plenty of space in these gardens to play some sport or just chill. There’s some public BBQ’s at one end that we’re very popular on the day we visited. Took a fair while for us to find a spot to cook our food. The park...More
