Dandenong Police Paddocks - Woodland Walk and Lagoon

A 2 km exploration on July 24, 2017, starting at the junction of Brady Rd and Greenbank Avenue.

In 1976, when the Brady  Rd Picnic Area was opened,  a Walking Track was constructed, known as the Woodland Walk. This started at the northern edge of the Picnic Ground, and continued as a circuit for 700 metres through the Lagoon Bushland area. The Walk is quite popular - it originally lncluded two boardwalks, which were dismantled in 2015 due to safety issues.

Several illustrated Information Boards are located along the Track, which describe the fauna and flora of the area, whnich is home to many kangaroos!

The Lagoon itself is now dry - overlow entered into a Creek, which passed through bushland to an undercrossing at Baden Powell Drive, close to the Brady Rd intersection. It then continues into the large cleared area known as Challenge Valley, used for activities of the 7th National Australian Scout Jamboree in 1964-65.
