We went to Footscray Park for NYE it was fantastic. Very kid freindly lots to see and do while waiting for the fireworks. They have a 9:30 pm fireworks display as well as a midnight one fun night would recommend to anyone with a family. They also had a lot of food stalls there for NYE but there was huge lines in all of them and it was very expensive. Great for weekends as well lots for the kids to do the park is huge. Looking forward to next years celebrations.

It took us a little while to realise why we found it so relaxing to let our kids play here. Eventually we noticed that, whilst there were a number of kids at the playground, there were so few white-australian families there where the parents "assist" their children on the equipment. Normally, we get eyeballed by parents since we don't hover around our kids like helicopters and follow them around to intervene at the bat of an eyelid.

So it was great!

The playground was fenced in with a track for kids to scooter around.

The Park is alongside the river and has water features (including ducks) within it. There is an abundance of grass, plants, shade trees, playgrounds, paths, shelter, public toilets and some BBQs. It is a great place for a picnic.

This part of Footstscray along Ballarat Road is quite pleasant and different from the run down and shabby feel that Footscray now has developed because of the diversity of its newer residents. There are good places to walk and large expanses of green and a view of the Flemington Race course.
