Melbourne's parks offer a wonderful range of opportunities to make the most of your leisure time. With a network of nearly 480 hectares of internationally acclaimed parks and gardens, there is something to suit everyone's lifestyle. Ranging from gardens with classic 19th century heritage features and majestic tree avenues, to the 170-hectare Royal Park with its unique bushland landscape and wetlands habitat, Melbourne offers a variety of open spaces and recreation opportunities.

Here at the Darebin Parklands in Fairfield is one of the water features with much to enjoy amongst the trees, walkways, cycle paths and picnic areas.
