Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great little park with a lake up one end. The bird life is prolific and although you are very much in suburbia when you enter this park you feel like you are lost in the bush. It really it worth a visit.

I visited again during the school holidays to find children who were playing at getting lost. The paths are well made and the trail is so narrow that this is a bit hard to do. I delighted in the birds, seen up close, and the walking along the old rail corridor.

This forest / park corridor runs through Malvern East and Carnegie. Each council has their own approach to this land - left surplus after the long-ago demise of the outer circle rail line.
The north section is bushland and ponds - nicely signed ( no dogs off leash) whilst the southern section is more traditional urban parkland with lawn areas.
Well worth the walk ( or cycle).

This little forest is on a long strip of land that runs off Dandenong Road near Chadstone. They have put in winding paths to give the appearance that it is much bigger than it is and to cut down the great noise that surrounds it. There is ample bird life and some nice water features. It is a great little treasure.

If you don't want to travel all the way to Richmond in order to change from the Glen Waverley line to the Dandenong line, alight at East Malvern railway station. Walk South through the urban forest to Hughesdale railway station. A healthy and enjoyable way to change lines.

A great little spot to sit and meditate - not far from the madding crowd and the trams. See the leaves change in Autumn or soak up some sun in the hotter months.

Love this place! It's a forest just off the princes hwy. It even as a fair size pond that hosts all kinds of bird life. Hardly anyone knows this place is here. Check it out. Dogs also allowed
