The Darebin Parklands straddle Alphington and Ivanhoe, approximately 10 kilometres northeast of the City of Melbourne, and they are a district park covering an area of 33 hectares. Darebin Creek flows through the Parklands, to join the Yarra River, at Alphington. The Darebin Parklands are highly regarded for its social, recreation, education, conservation, water quality management, cultural and heritage values.
A number of interlinked water features, ponds and lakes have been created and are fed by water from the Darebin Creek. These lakes provide habitats for water fowl and enhance the beauty of the park.
