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.

What travellers are saying
- I went with my friends and family. This place is great for any ages from ages 4 all the way up to 70 it is eco-friendly, and all the kids love this place. It is an awesome place for tourists to visit. I highly recommend this playground to visit. I go here every year it is so good to see all the children laugher and having a great time. Epic place to go with your friends you can have picnics there, sit near the water and it always an ice cream van at the entry it is cheap and delicious. They have a wide variety of different play equipment. Usually playgrounds are just for little kids but this playground is very different. Like i said before I HIGHLY recommend this place as a stay, a day trip but it would take you at least 3 hours to go on everything. Great place this is why I rate it 5 stars I would rate it more if I could because of how safe and great this place is.Written 8 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This playground was awarded as the Best Australian Playground by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects. It's an adventurous sort of playground, located near the new Royal Children's Hospital. It's fun for kids, who have many different activities to pursue.,Written 12 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Royal Park is a large inner park on the outskirts of the City of Melbourne. In fact, it's the most expansive park in the City. The park has a wide range of sporting facilities, and an up-to-date playground for children. The Royal Park Golf Course is a breeding place for champions, and it's only 3 km (2 miles) from the City. He best place to access the park is through Gatehouse St.Written 14 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Was a great time spent at metal art world. Being at the end of street in the industrial area I was expecting a few metal arts but we were amazed the artwork there was fantastic so many to look at and interact with take as many photo’s as you like ( I took hundreds) After the metal art you go up stairs for some mazes and light rooms. Would definetly recommend having a look.Written 9 October 2023
- On a hot summers night this park is quite romantic to walk through... the sprinklers come alive and the cool atmosphere with the lights causing dappling on the grass is quite beautiful. For me, in this instance, it was not romance that brought me here but serendipity. My companion was someone I was familiar and safe with...so it was a pleasant park to walk through.
Declared a park in 1873...It is located directly north of the University of Melbourne and bounded on its eastern and western sides by Melbourne General Cemetery and Royal Parade respectively. The reason I was here was simply because I had been visiting my daughter in the nearby Royal Women's Hospital ... and I felt like walking that evening.
It was named for Albert, Prince Consort. It is truly a wonderful place to unwind from. your day.Written 28 January 2023
- Great, fun adventure playground full of slides, castles, sandboxes, an in-ground trampoline, a basketball court, and assorted old (and sometimes broken) toys. Based on other reviews I was afraid it would be a little more dangerous (especially for really little ones), but it was not bad as long as you supervise. My children loved it, so we went multiple times (our lodging was nearby). Not worth a journey from far out, but definitely worth going to if you are nearby. Check their hours though, because it is not open often.Written 23 February 2020
- The Inner Circle Railway ran through the inner suburbs of Melbourne, including North Carlton and Fitzroy. It was constructed to complement Melbourne's radial transport system. Since the abolition of the railway line, the Inner Circle Railway has become a linear park, which is much-loved by the youngsters in this densely populated inner suburban area.Written 8 June 2023
- This is a beautiful bit of nature in the midst of Melbourne’s west. The place is filled with families and friendly dogs and is a great place for an off-lead romp with friends. Mr Jones and Elwood give it very high marks for sniffability too.Written 27 August 2018
- As far as kids playgrounds go, from an adults opinion, this is quite good fun, the dragon slide, looks amazing, even the swings are quirky, with the frame being a giraffe, all in all a fun, area.Written 14 July 2023
- A pleasant green space not far from Melbourne University this parkland is around the size of a small city block and doesn't have any special reason to visit it. It is however a nice enough slice of greenery and appeared quite clean upon my visit, not festooned with rubbish or random homeless people.Written 19 June 2023
- Visited on my recent stay in May, I could see it from my apartment window so went to check it out, more so for the unusual tree sculptures there.Written 17 July 2022
- Flemington is one of the most culturally diverse suburbs in Melbourne. Debney's Park is a great resource for the community, especially the social housing nearby. Under the new plan, the sporting facilities will be upgraded, especially the soccer pitch, and clubrooms. The old community centre was getting a bit worn, the new facilities promise to be a new beginning for Debney's Park.Written 17 November 2020
- We actually planned on visiting the nearly Royal Park playspace but found it uncomfortable due to heat and lack of shade. Came instead to this excellent park and garden. Located across the road from swimming pool and footy ground that’s home to AFL team north Melbourne.
TIP: plenty of street parking in middle of Haine StWritten 10 November 2020
- This reserve is rather plain, It fronts on Flemington Road then runs backwards for quite a way. The children's playground is fun for the younger ones. Apart from the toilet, there's also a water fountain. Eivers Reserve is easy to access from Flemington Road, it's a good place to kick a ball around.Written 14 July 2022
- Coronet Park is a horsey place, adjacent to the Coronet Stables, which provides community facilities, and a cafe which serves good, wholesome food at economical prices. It's just over the road from Flemington Racecourse, The park is good for younger children, and there's enough room to kick a ball. This "pocket park" is a welcome community facility in this heavily built-up area.Written 23 September 2022
