If you’re feeling active, Grace Park is a great place to be. The kids’ playground includes a flying fox and a rope climbing net, while locals of all ages come to use the basketball and squash half courts, or join the tennis club. It’s also on a bicycle route and close to trains and trams.

Lined by oak trees, the park has plenty of open space that can be hired for events and is used for activities such as Carols by Candlelight.

Grace Park Hawthorn Club operates the clay tennis courts.

In 2016, a raingarden opened in Grace Park; it's one of the ways we are improving our water management. Read about the Grace Park raingarden project.
