Catani GardensCatani Gardens are recognisable in photographs for their avenues and rows of palm trees right on the St Kilda foreshore.
Reflecting St Kilda's past life as a continental-style seaside resort, the Catani Gardens comprise some six hectares of magnificent landscaped gardens.
Heritage listed Catani Gardens is named after its Italian born designer, Carlo Catani - a prominent landscape designer in the late 19th century. The original 1910 lava rock wall encloses the park on the west boundary, extending from the edge of the Gardens along the southwest boundary and past the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron.
You will find people sunbaking, drinking, cooking as well as playing the odd game of football throughout the park. Sheltered from the wind, the gardens offers visitors a good alternative to St Kilda beaches.
The park has a running track and a great gazebo smack bang in the centre, so grab your friends, take a picnic and enjoy at drink in the park.
The gardens are managed by the City of Port Phillip.
