Named after Melbourne's co-founder, John Pascoe Fawkner, with 100 acres first reserved in 1862, Fawkner Park remains largely unchanged from its original design. The spacious park features two art-deco brick pavilions and several walking paths that meander through the sweeping fields. They are lined with...More

I walk through the Fawkner park everyday as it's a shortcut to my workplace in St. Kilda Rd. It's huge and very well maintained. A lot of people come to this park to walk their dogs, jog or just get some exercise.

Fawkner Park hides its charms a little further south of the Botanic Gardens, bounded by Toorak, St Kilda and Commercial Roads. Lovely to live next to, a surprise to stumble across and fun for everyone (and their dogs!)

This park is a handy calming shortcut to St Kilda Rd business precinct due to the relative proximity to Sth Yarra train station - about a 20 to 30 mins brisk walk with stops at traffic lights. Not quiet with 3 major roads as boundary...More

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.
