    The Sam Merrifield Library has rebadged itself as the Neighbourhood Lounge. With more small apartments being built in Moonee Valley, residents need space to work and relax, so the Neighbourhood Lounge has become a home away from home. Facilities include Wi-Fi, which is popular, Internet terminals PCs, and meeting rooms. There is also a selection of newspapers and magazines, and of course, books. By the way. there's also a Silent Study room for students.

    Bars and restaurants are displacing dress shops in Puckle St, adding new life to this famous shopping strip. You can now get a drink or a meal virtually any time, day or night. The bars such as Suburban Cellar Door are welcoming. Cafes such as Six Points serve good meals and coffee, It's surprising how quickly Puckle St has rejuvenated itself.

    The end of the Covid lockdown has given Moonee Ponds Central a boost. K Mart is super busy, and Coles and the associated retailers have been doing good business. In all, MPC and Puckle Street have become a hive of activity, especially with new apartment complexes nearby,

    Now that the Covid epidemic is receding, Aberfeldie Park is returning to its traditional role as an Australian rules football ground, for both men and women. The club house is quite impressive and a crowd usually gathers for a celebratory drink after the main game. The oval is well looked after, it's also an off-leash dog park. Please be considerate and pick up any doggie droppings. The children's playground is suitable for active children of varying ages.

    The Maribyrnong River flows through Melbourne's north-western suburbs. Maribyrnong Park, which adjoins the river, is a great asset for the people of Moonee Valley. With the Corona threat abating, people are coming out of hibernation. You can see people training in the early evening for tennis, soccer, football or just walking their dog.

    Moonee Ponds Creek Trail follows the Moonee Ponds Creek from north of Strathmore to the the area where the creek
    enters the Yarra River, The creek is really a series of interconected ponds and wetlands. Work is progressing on returning the creek to an active area of native bushland, where indigenous animals and birds can flourish. Following the Moonee Ponds Creek hiker biker trail is a good day out, some areas like Travancore are quite attractive,

    With spring in the air, Ormond Park will be getting more use. Essendon Royals Soccer Club is an occupant of the ground, as is the Moonee Valley Cricket Club. The spring blooms will add to the park's attractiveness. The playground, which suits children of all ages, is fenced. The Moonee Ponds Creek Bicycle route can be accessed from the park.

    A delightful restaurant in a street of great eating places. Gourmet Kitchen is a bright, cheerful, spotlessly clean restaurant, great music, great food, great service.

    What a great place to spend a couple of hours relaxing with a nice wine. I saw a small group playing cards enjoying time together whilst sipping wines. We sat in a secluded room and enjoyed and wonderful Farmers Platter full of a great selection of meats and cheeses, it was delicious.

    The wine list is strong and lots of good wines in there, the service is fantastic, the atmosphere perfect for an easy time out!

    Love this place, highly recommended!

    This place has been a staple of the area for years and yet it's never ridiculously busy. The staff are always great and there's some great drinks on offer. The music is usually pretty cool and it's a great place for a couple of quiet ones away from the big crowds.

    This station is one of the oldest railway stations in Melbourne, it is a fine example of the artisans' skills. In the mid 19th century, public buildings were created by hand. The station, as was common at the time, is made of red brick and ochre stucco. A tall chimney (no longer in use) dominates the station, from the time when wood was the main heating fuel. By the way, a drawback of the Moonee Ponds station is that it no longer has conveniences, which is inconvenient.
