South Surrey Park
Pix of my visit of April 14 2013.
South Surrey Park is in the suburb of Surrey Hills, about five minutes drive fro my home. It's being progressively replanted with indigenous native species and is currently maintained by the City of Boroondara and the Friends of South Surrey Park.
It follows the course of Back Creek from Union Road in the north to Riversdale Road in the South. There are well graded walking paths throughout the park, and a children's playground adjacent to Verdun Street.
The park was formed on land owned by Mr W. Kleinert, a coachbuilder and blacksmith of 34 Union Road.
A footbridge across the creek in the park was opened with ceremony in 1937 by the Governor of Victoria, Sir Winston Duggan (see the Photo!). The footbridge partially collapsed in the 1990s and was rebuilt using only some new material.
