In addition to the Bay, to the south and close to Melbourne CBD there is the Albert Park Lake around which there is an extensive park. The park encompasses 2.25 square kilometres of parkland including Albert Park Lake (0.49 square kilometres) and provides numerous ovals, sporting facilities, the Albert Park Public Golf Course, a 5 km walking track around the lake, and the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit.
I have blogged before about the Yarra River that course through Melbourne, but there are also smaller creeks and lakes throughout the metropolitan area.
