On any day the weather permits, Victoria Gardens in Prahran is filled with locals taking the air in its iconic surrounds. Hidden by hedges, stepping through the gates of the park immediately takes visitors a world away from bustling High Street and back into the majesty of the Victorian Era.
Visitors use the gardens for a variety of purposes. It is a beautiful place to relax while the kids run around, or to take the dog for a walk. Personal trainers take clients for fitness activities and on sunny days, locals can be found lounging on the grass with their papers and their picnic baskets. The gardens also regularly hold host to free music events including the established Opera in the Park twilight concerts organised by Stonnington City Council.
