Probably more for families, but still interesting for casual walkers and visitors, and the play equipment looks very imaginative. There are bbq facilities, although we didn't use them.

This is a great park particularly if you are a dog owner. Big enough for your dog to have exercise in safety. A very pleasant park to walk around as it has been well maintainedplenty of shade to escape the sun.

Very big open grassy area. Things to climb for kids [see the picture - that's "the monster". Could do a picnic. Easy parking.

I've only been going to the left side of the park (the right side of the gully separating the two is for children and has a great play area). It's a great place to take my dog for a run, there's plenty of shade, dogs and dog-friendly people. The path around the park as been resurfaced and is now really... More

Great foodie market held at Alma Park every Saturday 9 -3. Awesome street food vendors.... (try the sliders if they are there.....yummm). A really cool vibe, picnic blankets available for sitting back and chilling out with some yummy food, beer, cider or coffee.

Gorgous attractive park near Chapel street. Lovely for a picnic or a walk and ideal for young children with shade from the trees and playground..There is also a dog walking park too. Melbourne does inner city parks beautifully.

This large local park is bisected by a railway cutting. This allows the west side to be an off leash area for dogs and the east side to have sporting facilities and a children's playground. As you might expect in St.Kilda, some of the play equipment is definitely " one off", especially the tree house built into a 100 year... More
