Our kids loved playing here, by the sea, very well kept gardens. Bbq areas for summer are a real bonus. We loved st kilda and Catani Gardens are a must visit while in the area.

I was lucky enough to go here and enjoy a festival at the same time. The view is epic. It is a nice picnic spot, and a great place for kids to run around. It's close to St Kilda Pier and to the shops. And it is near public transport too.

A stroll through these lovely gardens is worth the visit when spending a day at St Kilda. The gardens are well maintained

These gardens are quite large and stretch both sides of Fitzroy Street and provide a pleasant stretch of green and a few palm trees thrown in as well as some restaurants and other buildings. Not the best part of Melbourne and not the best gardens but good on a sunny warm day with access to both the beaches and the restaurants in Fitzroy Street and around.
