Overview
More
Away from the hustle and bustle of urban life, Jells Parks has over nine kilometres of paths and trails and 127 hectares of wide open spaces. There are many barbeque and picnic areas. So relax under the shade of the Pines, enjoy the lake views at the Elms, or watch the children enjoy the playground at Stringybark or Yabbie Hill. The main Dandenong Creek Trail runs north-south through Jells Park. All paths are multi-use so you can take your choice of cycling, jogging, or simply strolling. As you pass through wetlands and billabongs, take a look at the variety of native bird life. Jells Lake is a beautiful man-made feature with a variable water level that flows from the Dandenong Creek. Its main purpose is conservation, so no boating or canoeing is allowed. Fishing in Jells Lake is permitted only from the two larger jetties. A valid Recreational Fishing Licence is required. No fishing is allowed within the conservation area. Vehicle access is from Ferntree Gully Road or Waverley Road. Enter by foot along the Dandenong Creek Trail or Scotchmans Creek Trail. Jells Park is open all year with 24 hour pedestrian access. Hours of entry for vehicles vary between gates and times of year. From Waverley Road gates open at 8am. Dogs are allowed in Jells Park on leash at all times.

Great venue for over 20, 900 people to hear Christmas carols and hymns on the very large lawn. Wonderful fireworks overhead ended the evening making a memorable splash of colours, lights and music. This was Christmas Downunder
