A very spacious area well laid out with gardens of flowers and various plants, including a Rose garden. Also has a conservatory. Its air of serenity entices visitors so simply spend time meandering or resting in its midst.

In the middle of residential Elwood, lies this magnificent old Botanical retreat. Winding paths. Beautiful Rose garden

This is a great little place for a picnic, BYO food and drink! Perfect for picnics with the family and friends. Great on a summers day or for a cheeky evening stroll. I spent many an evening wandering around here. Very calming.

If you have some time then pay this little park a visit. Beautiful, 10 minutes away from beach easy walk. Lots of shadow, so you don'T get sun burned.

Nice small urban park away from the madness of the beach, but was expecting to see plants labelled with explanations which weren't there. Good place for a picnic or to relax.

Unlike a lot of Botanical gardens, this one is much more boutique. Not far from the hustle of StKilda and a perfect place to unwind on a hard day. Walk through the gardens and enjoy the beauty
