Has a paved walking or jogging track over a kilometre long, around the garden. I walked rapidly for 3 rounds to get some exercise.

This is an absolutely serene place to be in in all the hustle and bustle of Box Hill, Box Hill Central and Box Hill Hospital. The gardens are beautiful even in the winter and there's ample space and benches all around. Good place to relax,...More

This garden was made over few years ago. A walking trail and basketball court were installed. Recently it was polluted with a lot of rubbish and shopping trolleys.

It's a lovely park which is family friendly, a good venue for jogging and walk with a 1km track available. Also note there is a basketball area and a BBQ area. It's a relaxing spot with opportunity to feed the ducks in the pond. Lots...More
