The park is great for experiencing outdoor activities, from canoeing, walks, bikes, jogging, children's play grounds and picnics. Gum trees, a walk along the Yarra River and can see mobs of kangaroos. Thoroughly recommended for overseas visitors

Fabulous place for a cycle ride, a walk, a picnic (sadly a cafe/art gallery on site no longer is open).... and to see kangaroos at dusk. They're everywhere, super to show off to your international guests :)

Beautiful well maintained reserve with BBQ facilities, undercover seating & play equipment. Bring a picnic rug as the tables/seats can fill up quickly especially during school holidays or the weekends and remember to bring a garbage bag as all rubbish needs to be taken home....More
