This is a beautiful greenlung in a city space. Nice walking paths and some interesting features. Well maintained park. Good for a lunchtime break or a morning stroll.

A lovely little garden near Parliament House, with a very impressive fountain. Great grassy area with flower beds, and views of some of Melbourne's more historic buildings.

A great garden, kind of hidden from main Melbourne CBD area. The fountain is upside down artwork. This park gives a good perspective of the city skyline with some lovely old buildings sitting in the foreground. Worth a stop.

The gardens were well maintained with beautiful flowers. There was a horseshoe shaped water feature that you could walk into to take a picture - or get wet. They had a statue for one of the local aborigine business couples. Lovely gardens.

Cute gardens beside the Victorian parliament. Lovely spot to relax on a nice day. Nice retro fountain. Good garden plantings here too. Great spot to temporarily escape the city intensity.

Seriously nice gardens on the edges of Melbourne. Sure on the weekend you have to dodge a few hundred wedding photo sessions but its always fun to photobomb those. Lots of possums at night if you're into that sort of thing and very late in...More

There are numerous parks in the city, I often find this one to quieter than the others. It's quite peaceful next to Parliament house and near the cathedral.

Take a picnic and relax in the gardens. The water feature is a child magnet ! The gardens are really well kept. Worth a visit and you can use the free tram to get there !
