Braeside Park

Braeside Park is a large (350 hectares) area reserve in the outer suburb of Braeside, 25 km SE of Melbourne.

It is close to high-density visually obtrusive residential development and adjacent to massive ugly industrial activity .

Prior to European squatters moving in during in the 1830s, it was the home of Aboriginal peoples.

Until 1909, it was cattle country, and in 1920 the land was used for horse-training and racing. In 1940, part of the site became a sewage treatment centre. In 1980, the sewage treatment facility was closed down, and in 1989 the reserve became a Regional Park and was revegitated.

Relics of former usage are apparent throughout the Park, which has several walking/cycling tracks.

Cattle are still grazed in the Park!

I visited the Park on April 18, 2007.
