With seating, open space, a duck pond, BBQs, toilets, playgrounds, and basketball hoops, you can say the Box Hill Gardens has much to attract. It is just across the road from the Box Hill Hospital and a short walk from the railway station

It is a large space of green close to the hospital and we can be thankful it has not been developed and remains a public park and is quite a pleasant area away from the bustle of nearby Box Hill and Whitehorse Road. Great to...More

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
