Footscray Park

Footscray Park is one of the greenest park near Melbourne (about 8 km from the city), located on the south bank of the Maribyrnong River. The park is known for its plant collection, ornamental ponds, garden structures that blend very well with the nature, and some wildlife. With BBQs, benches, and scenic beauty, it is an ideal place for a week-end outing for families and friends.
