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..

Parliament Gardens is a pleasant refuge from Melbourne's traffic, just next to the Parliament of Victoria. The small triangular gardens are always well tended and feature the Coles Fountain, which is a vertical fountain you can walk between -- it's always cool on a hot...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.

A great garden, kind of hidden from main Melbourne CBD area. The fountain is upside down artwork. This park gives a good perspective of the city skyline with some lovely old buildings sitting in the foreground. Worth a stop.
