Covering almost 19 acres, Central Park is embellished with avenue trees, shrubs and flowerbeds and adjoined by an open oval for cricket, soccer, and other team sports.
It is home to one of the oldest conservatories in Victoria and is one of a handful of Edwardian public gardens.
In 1906, Malvern Council purchased an undeveloped land on the Gascoigne Estate. The area had formed part of a golf course that spanned over the nearby Hedgeley Dene Gardens.
The park was laid out with its sportsground and recreational gardens in 1908.
