  "...spectacular pond and fountain.."
by iandsmith

Malvern Gardens feature a spectacular pond and fountain, somewhat unusually not dedicated to anyone or thing in particular. Located in the heart of Malvern, a suburb for shop lovers, the gardens feature palms, elms and array of flowerbeds with lawns and planting arranged so that long views can be obtained throughout. A fantastic location for a family picnic.
It's also important to note that, if you're there during the week, a school also inhabits one corner of the block should you wish to avoid boisterous children at knock-off time around 3.30pm.
This is just one of the 229 parks and gardens in the Melbourne area, many of which are of a very high standard. Victoria used to promote itself as the Garden State and it's fair to suggest that Melbourne holds up its end.

Address: High Street, Malvern
