This is a little slice of greenery in the city center, and quite beautiful. There's a very cool fountain there, and if it has been midday, I would have been tempted to run through it!

This city park is not among Melbourne's largest. It is pleasant enough, with the city fathers having provided some seating. It can be a good spot to rest for five minutes after a visit to Melbourne's Parliament House or St Patrick's Cathedral. However the nearby...More

Visited on Sunday 4th March. We went for a wander around when we were at the Parliament Building on our way to St Patrick's Cathedral. A nice area to sit and relax.

We walked through this relatively small triangular-shaped garden on the north side of the Parliament building and found it to be absolutely lovely. The hot, sunny day had brought about 50 people here to sit on benches and sprawl on the lush green grass. Flowers...More

This is a small triangular garden opposite Parliament house in Spring Street which is a pleasant green space with some interesting statues often overlooked because of its size and location..

Another garden to appreciate in the heart of Melbourne. This one is only small but still worth a walk through. It has a lovely fountain, different for a conventional fountain, more modern. There are flower beds, and lots of green lawn and space. The old...More

A lovely little garden near Parliament House, with a very impressive fountain. Great grassy area with flower beds, and views of some of Melbourne's more historic buildings.
