About the Park
Covering almost 19 acres, Central Park - is decoratively embellished with avenue trees, shrubs and flowerbeds. The park's features include John Landy Oval, a fitness track and playground . It is also home to one of the oldest conservatories in the state and with its original landscape features intact, it is one of only a handful of Edwardian public gardens in Victoria.
Since it was acquired by Malvern City Council in 1906, Central Park has become a public garden of exceptional quality. The Park has remained faithful to the original design concept, although its history is one of evolution and change, right up to the present day.
Central Park was laid out in the same period as the Federation houses in the surrounding streets. The Park and its surrounds together form a consistent and highly attractive Edwardian era precinct.
Location & Transport
Located on the corner of Burke and Wattletree road, the park is easily accessible by public transport.
