Named after Melbourne's co-founder, John Pascoe Fawkner, with 100 acres first reserved in 1862, Fawkner Park remains largely unchanged from its original design. The spacious park features two art-deco brick pavilions and several walking paths that meander through the sweeping fields. They are lined with...More

I walk through the Fawkner park everyday as it's a shortcut to my workplace in St. Kilda Rd. It's huge and very well maintained. A lot of people come to this park to walk their dogs, jog or just get some exercise.

Fawkner Park hides its charms a little further south of the Botanic Gardens, bounded by Toorak, St Kilda and Commercial Roads. Lovely to live next to, a surprise to stumble across and fun for everyone (and their dogs!)

Fawkner Park has wide open spaces, with much lawn, many trees, cycle / foot paths, children's playgrounds, playing fields for various team sports, but few toilets. I have been here for Summertime picnics lunching in the shade of the huge old trees. There are quite...More

This park is a handy calming shortcut to St Kilda Rd business precinct due to the relative proximity to Sth Yarra train station - about a 20 to 30 mins brisk walk with stops at traffic lights. Not quiet with 3 major roads as boundary...More

Agree with Victorianlad below, it could be even better with native trees - it is a large park with lots of space, good for locals but close to the city and good for relaxing, walking, picnics and walking the family pet.

Whilst the Botanical Gardens has got the amazing plants and scenery... and Albert Park has the great lake and City views, living in the area I find myself going to Fawkner Park a little bit more often. It's very relaxed, lots of open green space....More

A fairly regular city park with nice old trees and plenty of space. Good spot for a jog, walk or chill.
