The Grass is Greener
Expansive gardens without the maintenance

Melbourne’s Central Park

Named after Melbourne’s co-founder, John Pascoe Fawkner, and first reserved in 1862, Fawkner Park’s 100 acres of gardens remain largely unchanged from its original design.

Features include two art deco brick pavilions and meandering paths lined with Moreton Bay figs, elms, poplars and oaks. Plantings in the park include a mix of native and exotic trees.

Summer weekend cricket matches have an English ‘village green’ atmosphere, with spectators making use of the free on-site barbecues and picnic areas. And its not just cricket on the weekends. Depending on the season you’ll see softball, football, tennis and rugby. The Fawkner Park Children’s Centre is also within the park, along with playgrounds and sports grounds.

Roaming Free

One of the concerns many people face when moving into an inner-city apartment is how their pets will cope. The back garden is no longer an option. And the local park is a thing of the past. But what’s left behind is more than well substituted by the size and proximity of the parkland adjacent to The Fawkner Residences. Fawkner Park, immediately to the east, is a not only expansive, but importantly is recognised Melbourne-wide, as a park that welcomes dogs. A generous ‘off leash’ area within Fawkner Park allows dogs to enjoy the freedom of their own backyard. Away from main roads, this precinct allows a level of safety they have become accustomed to (both owners and their dogs). And for those people who like to introduce their pets to neighbouring pooches, there’s an extremely active dog group that meets up late every afternoon.

Tennis, Anyone?

What could be more convenient (aside from having a tennis court in your own garden) than having tennis courts literally a stone’s throw from where you live – in two directions?

The Fawkner Park Tennis Centre comprises a series of courts and amenities that make the idea of owning your own court redundant. And instead of being surrounded by high fences, the outlook comprises the verdant and leafy park surrounds. Tennis World at Albert Park is located at Hanna Street, directly opposite The Fawkner Residences, Tennis World at Albert Park, offer competition-grade courts – ideal for those used to playing on clay courts.
