This is one neat little park nestled amongst the trees and the very pretty East Melbourne homes.

If you're not having a kick about with a ball or a game of tennis (!!) the playground is sure to win everyone over!

There's a sandpit x 2, swings, slides, lookout and other bits and bobs that will hold their amusement.

The playground is only semi-fenced and it's set back from the road. Toilet block within reach and parking is free for 1 hour.

Top Tip:

The East Melbourne General Store (53 Hotham St, East Melbourne) is a sweet little store stocking all your conveniences and is a cafe in one.

Order your coffee and pastrie and relax with a free 'little library' book on the front deck.
