Relaxing city spot

There are numerous parks in the city, I often find this one to quieter than the others. It's quite peaceful next to Parliament house and near the cathedral.

Take a picnic and relax in the gardens. The water feature is a child magnet ! The gardens are really well kept. Worth a visit and you can use the free tram to get there !

Truly nice greens with water fountain in the middle of Melbourne concrete buildings, an oasis when you are tired after walking. Have a relax sit in this garden, enjoy the trees, birds singing and water play fountain next to you, awesome. Not too far from Melbourne free service Tram Line, also to China Town and Parliament Building.

Good choice to spend a bit of rest for our feet during family Christmas shopping, which would be added on to our next year plan again.

I just adore parliament gardens at night. The water feature lights up all different colours and it's magical. I always try and make time to visit whenever I'm in Melbourne.

Parliament Gardens are just next to Parliament House in Spring Street, Melbourne. The grass is always nicely cared for. The Gardens fill out a corner section, it's a good spot to chill. Parliament Gardens also have a water feature which can carry water for quite a way if the wind is blowing.

Very peaceful gardens with a great water feature. Was good to sit and people watch and see the things they do for a photo with the water

Parliament Gardens fill a corner next to the Victorian State Parliament House. The grass is always green. The park has a water feature, which might be described as a fountain, if you use the term loosely. City workers often eat their sandwiches there. The park is probably not dangerous at night, but it's probably not worth taking chances.
