When it rains in Melbourne and the beach is ruled out for the day many locals and visitors alike instead flock to the city's parks.

Sure, Half Moon Bay may be out for the day, and you'll find no sunshine at Dendy Street Beach, but with the rain bringing out vivid colours and scents of pine trees, green grass and more; a good park surely remains an option.

When done wrong this can make perhaps make a bad day even worse, but when chosen wisely, a walk or run through the park in the rain can surely wash away any blues surrounding the weather of the day.

For those looking for a fantastic park (and one that makes a great visit in rain or sunshine), this green space in Caulfield is fantastic.

With easy access to the park via car, tram, or even bike, Caufield Park has something for everyone with playgrounds, sporting equipment, and even a lake set within its boundaries.

With the diversity of attractions on offer, the Park is a great way to spend an afternoon or weekend with the family with something to please everybody. For those who may visit the Park for a quicker spell, the running track throughout is scenic, lengthy (at just over 2kms), and offers a good mix of sand and concrete for those looking to mix up their running surface.

And, if you find yourself intent to explore the local area? There's a number of other great parks nearby and in surrounding suburbs that'll surely have something on offer you like.
