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.

Parliament Gardens is adjacent to the Parliament of Victoria. The Gardens have a wide area of lawn, and flower beds which come to life in Spring. The Gardens have a water feature which is quite unusual. The Gardens also have an impressive sculpture of Pastor Sir Douglas and Lady Gladys Nicholls, who were active in advancing the cause of Australia's indigenous people. Sir Douglas was also a champion footballer. In all, they were a remarkable pair.

Parliament Gardens adjoin the Parliament of Victoria. The grounds are smooth and green, and the beautiful flower beds are well cultivated. The water feature is quite spectacular. One outstanding feature is the sculpture of Sir Douglas and Gladys, Lady Nichols. They were among the early leaders in the movement for Aboriginal advancement. Parliament Gardens is a good place for a picnic.

The gardens are very green with the trees, lawns, and colourful flower beds. We enjoyed walking on the lawns and seeing the water feature (good for kids to walk through on the hot days). I had not know that there was the statue of Sir Doug and Lady Gladys Nicholls here. This made the place even more special.

Sitting close to Parliament house is this pretty little garden. Despite the busy hub bub of city life outside this is a calm relaxing place. The Coles fountain is both pretty and the children love it. It is also home to a statue of Pastor Sir Douglas & Lady Gladys Nicholls who fought for the rights of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander People

Parliament Gardens is a lovely green area just around from Parliament House. It is not a huge space but it makes the whole area look better. It's a nice spot for a short walk and a sit down, to meet friends or have a rest. There are some nice statues and some water features as well.

This park is smaller than some of the others but it’s beautiful and usually less crowded. The middle has a huge fountain that is GREAT for kids or yourself during hot weather. If a larger park is what you need hit up Carlton Gardens or Fitzroy Gardens both within 2 blocks of this spot.

One of Melbourne's many gardens. Quite small, but still rather pleasant. Good for a quite sit but not much more.

Has a unusual Government figure of past Premiers and other Government staff, I'm not from Victoria so did not interest me.

This is a little slice of greenery in the city center, and quite beautiful. There's a very cool fountain there, and if it has been midday, I would have been tempted to run through it!
