Beckett Park itself. It has two dominant features. An impressive war memorial records the names of local personal who served overseas in World War One. Another tall stone structure is the Centenary Lookout Tower built in 1934 to commemorate the centenary of the State of Victoria. It is open to climb to the top and enjoy the view. Between these two structures is a large play area, all surrounded by large expanses of grass.
At the western side of Beckett Park is Maranoa Gardens. These gardens began in 1901 as a private garden. The former City of Camberwell acquired the area in 1922, formally opening them to the public in 1926. They cover 2.6 ha and is home to around 4000 different Australian native plants from all regions of Australia. Well worth a visit.
