LAKE AT THE PARKLANDS

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.

  2. If I had to pick my favourite landscape, it would be an extensive white sandy beach, blue ocean, clear sky and perhaps a cliffy area around.

    If my beloved had to choose, he would go for Darebin Parklands or something like it - dense trees, water features, lakes, natural grasses and access into the local golf course.
