The gardens are pleasant, with a bowling green, public toilets, shady spots, lawns, old trees and a playground. However, the old mansions that surround it are well worth a look, too.

Forget the famnous park with the big lake. This much smaller park has much more soul and is a lovely little park to visit.

Love these gardens - beautiful for a stroll or picnic or just sitting on a bench breathing in the energised air 🌳 Love taking the weekend papers and a rug and sprawling out for a few hours with a snooze along the way !

These gardens are well maintained and a great place to walk our dog without the hustle and bustle of a city park. One part is children orientated with a playground and open space for kicking a ball or even a quiet game of cricket. I...More

Walk the gardens and be amazed at how the really rich Albert Park folk live. In their favor at least it's not Toorak. The gardens are nice though. Surprised they aren't gated and entry by pass key.

Fabulous picnic spot, for wedding photos, or just a stroll. Formal gardens surrounded by glorious Victorian houses. Play ground for the kids and lots of lush grass under shady trees to relax and picnic. Watch the locals playing tennis at the Southern end or lawn...More
