Central Park | Malvern East

Central Park - Burke Road, Malvern East

Covering almost 19 acres, Central Park is decoratively embellished with avenue trees, shrubs and flowerbeds and adjoined by an open oval for cricket and other team sports. The park's features include, a fun and fitness track and playground . It is also home to one of the oldest conservatories in the state and with its original landscape features intact, it is one of only a handful of Edwardian public gardens in Victoria.

Since it was acquired by Malvern City Council in 1906, Central Park has become a public garden of exceptional quality. The Park has remained faithful to the original design concept, although its history is one of evolution and change, right up to the present day.

Central Park was laid out in the same period as the Federation houses in the surrounding streets. The Park and its surrounds together form a consistent and highly attractive Edwardian era precinct.

The park is decoratively embellished with avenue trees, shrubs and flower beds, containg a fountain closer to the conservatory and adjoined by an open oval for cricket and other team sports. The park contains a fine and varied collection of trees. There are some excellent individual specimens and some trees date back to the initial plantings of 1908-10 including many of the avenue elms.
