Fawkner Park hides its charms a little further south of the Botanic Gardens, bounded by Toorak, St Kilda and Commercial Roads. Lovely to live next to, a surprise to stumble across and fun for everyone (and their dogs!)

Agree with Victorianlad below, it could be even better with native trees - it is a large park with lots of space, good for locals but close to the city and good for relaxing, walking, picnics and walking the family pet.

Whilst the Botanical Gardens has got the amazing plants and scenery... and Albert Park has the great lake and City views, living in the area I find myself going to Fawkner Park a little bit more often. It's very relaxed, lots of open green space....More

A fairly regular city park with nice old trees and plenty of space. Good spot for a jog, walk or chill.

This is a large park used by many to walk between Commercial and Toorak Roads. There are a number of sporting grounds. Unfortunately it lacks almost any native trees and instead sadly uses introduced European trees that are largely not favoured by native birds. Getting...More
