Black's Walk - Blackburn South

The Blackburn Creeklands consist of three continuous bushland reserves along Gardiners Creek in central Blackburn. Blacks Walk, Kalang Park and Furness Park form a green corridor featuring a delightful mixture of both bushland and open space areas. The creeklands help preserve the local environment whilst providing opportunities for a variety of recreational and educational activities. The three parks cover a total area of approx 21 hectares, extending 1.4km from Middleborough Rd in the west to Blackburn Rd in the east. 

The western end of Blackburn Creeklands features walking tracks through areas of remnant bushland, meandering creek and an open grassy area.  It’s a great place to stroll and listen to birds or just relax. A fantastic view over the treetops is afforded by a short walk to the top of the grassy hill in the west of the park.  The bushland in this park features many majestic eucalypts with nesting hollows that provide homes for the commonly seen parrots.

Blacks Walk was named after Malcolm C Black, City Engineer of the former City of Nunawading, 1947-1968.  Blacks Walk was acquired by the City of Nunawading (now part of the City of Whitehorse) in 1967.
