Hedgeley Dene Gardens, Malvern East

These pix were taken on Feb 28, 2014.

Hedgeley Dene Gardens is a public open space in the suburb of Malvern East in Melbourne. It is one of the most popular parks in the Malvern East locality. It is also significant as an example of public open space design that recreates the qualities of an informal, picturesque English garden or northern European landscape in an Australian suburb.

It forms part of a network of linear open spaces in Melbourne's eastern suburbs in the local government areas of Stonnington and Boroondara, formed along drainage easements and watercourses such as Gardiners Creek. However, Hedgeley Dene Gardens is unique due to its particular landscape.

There are many ducks and other birds resident in and around the lake!

My visit was a 2 km (return) exploratory hike of about 2 km, starting at Malvern Rd, near Darling Station.

An Information Board next to the Lake describes the history and development of the Gardens.

The heritage image shows the lake as it existed in 1880, acknowledged to the Stonnington City archives.
