This is a small garden situated just outside the CBD of Melbourne on the north-east. Just located beside the state parliament. Good place to relax if you're walking by the place or for office workers to chill from the surrounding area. A few monuments and an artistic water fountain to take photos.

Was not to impressed but it is pretty and easy to get to if you are in a centrally located hotel. If that is the case... A must see

There are quite a few gardens within close proximity, so this one doesn't do it for me.Yes it is close to the CBD and has pretty trees and environment to relax in but there are better gardens such as Fitzroy which offer more and are very close.

I loved strolling through the gardens here. Quite a busy place with people relaxing during their lunch breaks from work, etc.

Very close to the city. Our daughter had her wedding photos taken here. Lovely gardens. Lots of shady trees.

It might look like just another garden but it is surrounded by the Parliament building, Fitzroy garden (nicer & bigger garden) & Mercure hotel.

By comparison to many of Melbourne's gardens this is a small one at the side of Parliament house. Very close to this garden is the Fitzroy gardens which are much larger and probably better in all aspects.

Just off collins street, easy place to stop off and have a sandwich in the park on a nice day. Just be careful not to ride your bike through there!

We were going to see Chinatown on the opposite side of the street but can not miss the gardens with nice fountain designed in interesting way and working as a main tourist attraction. It form is close to circle with a path inside for people to have good photos.
