Whether you’re in the mood for a morning stroll, a lazy picnic or an outdoor get together, Boroondara has some of Melbourne’s most beautiful established parks and gardens.

Our gorgeous green spaces are expertly maintained and provide drinking fountains, comfortable seating and clean toilet facilities. Some have on-site barbecues for users to share. Check out what’s available at a park near you and soak up a little serenity.

If you love to draw and paint, see if you can join one of the Town Hall Gallery’s Walk and Sketch tours of gardens in Boroondara. 

Want to take the kids? Select from 102 children’s playgrounds, including playgrounds for families with mixed abilities.
