“Good for families and pets”
Review of Fawkner Park

Fawkner Park
Ranked #109 of 461 things to do in Melbourne
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 November 2017

Agree with Victorianlad below, it could be even better with native trees - it is a large park with lots of space, good for locals but close to the city and good for relaxing, walking, picnics and walking the family pet.

This is a beautiful park of Melbourne with great tree lined paths all the way across and throughout. Dogs are welcome and poo bags are at the bins. It has seats to sit and watch people playing sport. If you are into walking this is a must.

Whilst the Botanical Gardens has got the amazing plants and scenery... and Albert Park has the great lake and City views, living in the area I find myself going to Fawkner Park a little bit more often. It's very relaxed, lots of open green space. It reminds me of some of the Parks in London. If you're in to team sports there are lots of things to do, cricket pitches you can hire in summer and tennis courts open all year round.

I personally love just going for a nice walk, run or kicking a ball around with my daughter.

A fairly regular city park with nice old trees and plenty of space. Good spot for a jog, walk or chill.
