Fairfield Park and Gardens, Melbourne: 2 reviews and 10 photos

Essentially an extension of Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield Park is one of the closest areas of bushland to the city centre.

The brown, upside down Yarra River runs through the park and is much used by runners and cyclists, as well as locals and their BBQs. The Fairfield Amphitheatre is to be found here as is the Fairfield Boat House. If you cannot be bothered with walking, you an always hire a boat...

The Pipe Bridge (pedestrian) provides access to the other bank where more unspoilt bushland and grassland meanders on towards Heidelberg. And cutting through the park is the Yarra River Trail - a shared bike and walking track.
