It's not a really a place to kick the football around, but they are a wonderland of sight and sound if you are quiet enough. There are ducks on the pond and other water birds, small minnow fish swimming around and there are also huge trees in the garden, that dwarf everything around them.
The park itself crosses several roads from Allenby Street, you can cross Malvern Rd, over Ferncroft Ave, Glenbrooke ave to Carlyle Way. I'm not sure that the section between Allenby Street and Malvern Rd is strictly part of park, as it isn't as manicured as the rest. It is the section nearest the Carlyle Way that has the beautiful ponds and the ornamental bridges, no need to go to Monet's garden in Giverny, when we have such a lovely one so near.
The bridge reminiscent of some of the bridges in Monet's paintings
I live right near here & enjoy a safe sunny walk through, a gravel path in the centre is great for joggers too. Families with children can have fun watching their kids rummage through the pockets of landscaped areas & a picnic or two on the weekends can always be seen. Best access from Malvern Road near cnr Wattletree rd.
