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.

    The wetlands abut part of the Dandenong Creek trail from Highbury Rd Vermont South, to High St Rd Glen Waverley. .
    The wetland stretch for about 2k on an unmade track. Although reasonable well maintained, after rain it does form many large puddles.

    For the bird watcher there is a hide overlooking the betlands.

    I have been wa;lking sections of this trail for some years and it never ceases to provide a relaxing experience.

    There are 3 sections to the shared bike pedestrian trail:

    Upper Dandenong Creek – Heathmont to Jells Park
    Middle Dandenong Creek – Jells Park to Dandenong
    Lower Dandenong Creek - Dandenong to Patterson Lakes

    The trail totals 44 K

    I usually commence at the Burwood Rd entrance and behind the Morack TRd Golf Course on a wooden walkway and travel towards Heathmont.

    The path is well maintained and interesting.

    Being a shared path walkers need to be a little carfeful as some riders believe they are in an Olympic cycling event, and it can be a bit dicey at times.

    Unless you use the facilities such as the community hall and oval, I am not sure one would come to this part for its own, even the area has pleasant vibe.

    Opposite Brandon park shopping center and tucked in behind the police and fire station this is a large park area with soccer fields. Has a great playground, paved walking track around the outside and gradual hills.

    Great area to walk the dog.

    at first glance it looks like an okay playground. but at second glance you’ll a great bushland reserve.
    TIP: 4 street access points- Hinkler Rd East (best spot to access playground) Daryl Ave, Wolseley Ave (great bushland access) and Rolls Crt

    There is a spelling error for the title of this thread, by the first reviewer. It should be Bogong Reserve.

    My wife and I drove here for a walk and to see what this place is, as we were in the area for lunch at a local restaurant near Glen Waverley train station.

    This place is open space, with a walking track, a playground, grass, trees and shrubs. Good for some physical exercise.

    Been to this place before and it was ok but this time when we went, my daughter had a serious accident on the tyre tube slide. The new slide has a rough peg like surface, which caused the tyre to get caught and flip. That caused my daughter a lot of pain as her hand got crushed and she bumped her head. The slide attendant tried to blame my daughter for putting her hand down, but she only did after tyre flipped and that was to protect herself. Absolute disgrace!!! Told 3 different people and thought there was a big language barrier happening as well. No compensation and no care given what so ever. Guy at the front said management would be informed but that was it. It felt like my complaint was heard by deaf ears. The place needs a serious safety check as well as a good clean, the toilet facilities weren't cleaned regularly. On top of all that, it is $40 for my 7 year old to play there and they have the nerve to charge an additional $10 for a 5 minute bumper car ride. Robbery at its finest and I WILL NOT BE BACK!!!
