The much-loved Catani Gardens are defined by the mature Canary Island Palms along the foreshore. The park runs along Jacka Boulevard, named after Australia's most decorated World War I combat soldier, a St Kilda resident.. The park is a credit to the City of Port Phillip, who keep it in immaculate condition. The St KIlda Beach, the Sea Baths and the St Kilda Pier are nearby. The Gardens have lots of things for kids to do, with a playground and a pirate ship. There's also a BBQ and benches to give your feet a rest. And remember, it's a short walk to Luna Park. For generations of Melbournians, Luna Park has been "just for fun."

Come down to St Kilda and enjoy Luna Park, go for a quick dip in the water, then chill out and dry up by lying down under one of the palm trees in this serene place. Read a book, listen to music.
Easy to access off the tram from the CBD. Tram 96 is your best bet.

These gardens are almost on the beach but not quite. They do offer some peace and quiet from wat is a very busy area in St Kilda. They are very well kept, have some barbq areas and stuff to keep the kids amused. We never cease to marvel at th orws of palm tress - stately and imposing.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area - though parking is not aways easy. Normal stuff along Beaconsfield Parade

Visited on Friday 23rd February. I have often walked along this part of St Kilda's beachfront and these particular gardens are always well maintained. Todays visit was no different.

The quieter end of St. Kilda beach. Good for walking and talking. Stroll, relax and enjoy. Watch the kite surfers!
