- Current Covid-19 lockdown in Melbourne restricts travel to local parks for exercise. This place is within 3 kilometers from my house.
My wife and I visited this Park to enjoy a walk, the scenic views, fresh air and sunshine.
This is relatively large local park with extensive open grounds and a playground. Located next to the Yarra River with nice views.
Scotch College is located next to this Park. Our son went to Scotch College for Years 7 to 12, so we are very familiar with this area. It is a very affluent suburb.Written 22 September 2021

My wife and I visited this park recently to enjoy walking for exercise. During the pandemic, we had gotten used to visiting parks regularly and we have continued with this new hobby.

- This is a great picnic spot and if you get here by 11am you have first pick of the tables and get a good run at the BBQs. We chose the big picnic table under the roof and were well protected from the Summer sun. It is pleasant by the river with a car park and good playground right there. The fence is handy for holding small children and dogs from running on to the road or by the river.Written 17 December 2022
- This lovely old church is an oasis of peace in amongst the bustling and vibrant Glenferrie Road shopping precinct.
Stunning stained glass windows, ornate religious statues, tiled floor and wooden pews. Everything beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean.
Like stepping back 100 years in time.Written 4 March 2021
- Glenferrie Railway Station services the upper crust suburb of Hawthorn. It was recently upgraded to a Premium Station, which led to an improvement in services. The station dates from 1882. It services the Belgrave, Alamein and Lilydale lines. The station is quite picturesque -- it is on the Victorian Heritage RegisterWritten 5 December 2020

- From Hawthorn Station, it's around 5 minutes walk to the Swinburne University of Technology Hawthorn Campus. You can pick up a coffee on the way. Hawthorn Station is around 10 to 15 minutes from Flinders St Station.Written 20 February 2022
- Attended the Boroondara Volunteer Expo here today. Well organised event in this beautiful old building. Foundation stone was laid in 1888.

Nearby hotels, cafes and restaurants.Written 17 March 2021

- The spire is of an unusual design, with a square cross section and above the front door is a peacock motif. It is located on a busy corner and may be a challenge to get to.Written 20 October 2019
- This building looks totally different inside from what the outside suggests, and has been loving restored by the congregation in recent years. The pipe organ is marvellous. Acoustics in a building like this can be tricky, but it seems all covered by a PA system. Normally closed during the week but open pretty much throughout Sundays.Written 17 January 2020
