Brimbank Park is a very large longitudinal park located in Ascot Vale alongside the Maribyrnong River.

This Park area in Ascot Vale is well serviced with public transport and car parking, enabling anyone interested in availing themselves of the peaceful recreational pursuits that come when visiting a very well kept and vast public space.

The Park is split into 3 vague areas, (North - Middle - South).

The Northern end is home to the Sea Scouts and Canoe Club buildings. Alongside of which is a children's playground and free BBQ area.

The Middle Area at the moment has a large new $3.3 million multipurpose sports pavilion under construction that will be a boost for grassroots soccer, cricket and a number of other sports that are played in the park.

The South end has another children's playground and BBQ with a covered eating area. This whole end of the park is flanked by numerous other recreational facilities, including Tennis Courts, Mini Golf, a Golf driving Range and the Essendon Golf Club and Licenced Resturant. Also there is a foot bridge across the Maribyrnong River giving access to the Pipe Makers Park and Museum, and further on to Highpoint Shopping Centre.

For those wishing to do a spot of fishing, the Maribyrnong River offers pathways and ample opportunity to catch that elusive brim or mullet.

The whole park is dog friendly. Many people can be seen exercising their pets there during the day..

Remember to pick up after your dog and yourselves..

Fairbairn Park is vast in size. It borders the Maribyrnong River and can be accessed by public transport from Maribyrnong Road. There are a number of children's playgrounds, BBQ facilities, seats under shade trees and walking / cycling paths on both sand and bitumen. A bridge over the river takes you towards Highpoint Shopping Centre.

This is a big open space bordered by the curves of Maribyrnong river on one side. There are a few ovals used for cricket and soccer. Cricket practice nets,golf course and driving range, a canoe club, sea scouts and scouts are also found at this location. It is dog friendly, and you can continue over the walk bridge through the Pipemakers park and through to Footscray. Not a park full of flower beds, it's a park for action, or strolling!
