Great for kids
Jul 2020
Great park for kids to run and build. Lots of fallen branches which make excellent cubby houses to play in. Nice place for a walk, picnic or relaxing jog. Saw kangaroos and different birds... wombat poo but no wombat seen that day!
In school holidays there is a forest school program which is great fun (Eco Explorers run it).
Lots of different parking areas and walking tracks!

Westerfolds Park Templestowe
Nov 2019 • Friends
This park situated on the Yarra River is a large area of several hundred acres. You can see many bird species of
Cockatoo, eagles, hawks, magpies, rosellas and egrets.
There are also kangaroos, wallabies, possums, echidnas,
wombats and fruit bats.
It’s a lovely lace to just wander about or walk the many paths or cycle through the tracks.There are also many
tree species, wildflowers and grasses and if you are lucky,
you may even spot a platypus in the river.

Peaceful park
Sep 2019
Just off Fitzsimmons Lane Westerfolds Park offers some tranquility from the hustle and bustle. A large park with many different parking areas (some are cordoned off at the moment), a children's play area and the river to canoe or walk along. The park offers walking tracks and a peaceful picnic area. I saw a few kangaroos on my visit and I'm sure if I'd had more time to explore I'd have seen other wildlife.

Fantastic views and way to see kangaroos
Jul 2019
Brilliant walking or cycling spot in all weather. Love going through the areas with small paths away from the big playgrounds and BBQ areas, as very peaceful. Walking can be very gentle paths or do some small inclines if you prefer.

GREAT PLACE TO VISIT

Pretty scenery. Flora and Fauna. Amenities available. Walking tracks. Why not join the 5km Park Run held each Saturday morning at 8am.

A good walk!

Went with family. Great trails beside the yarra river. With plenty of rain, it was flowing nicely. If you are lucky, you see some wildlife like rosellas and roos. Great parking.

Paradise in the middle of the burbs

Excellent walking path.
Can see kangaroos if you are lucky.
Playground for kids on the fitzsimmons road side.
path can extend in to the city.
Can be isolated in parts, so would recommend a walking partner if that bothers you.

Lovely open space to visit. Plenty of room for a game of baseball & yet not intruding on those of us who chose to sit & chat. Great playground for big & little kids. BBQ’s. Lots of walking tracks which were terrific for little ones on scooters. Close to the river. Easy access from Thompsons Lane.

The bush in suburbia
Dec 2018 • Friends
The park is great for experiencing outdoor activities, from canoeing, walks, bikes, jogging, children's play grounds and picnics.
Gum trees, a walk along the Yarra River and can see mobs of kangaroos. Thoroughly recommended for overseas visitors

Great Place for a BBQ
Dec 2018 • Friends
This was a great place to have a bbq lunch. Just had to collect dried kindling and wood, and get a nice fire going.
Just a perfect location to have the kids run around and have a bbq
Would go back again
