Frankston Botanic Gardens (or George Pentland Botanic Gardens) is located a short distance from Frankston's CBD. During the week, you'll find plenty of company in the gardens with a range of officeworkers and nearby hospital workers walking and running throughout the gardens in their lunch breaks.

The Frankston Botanic Gardens are also a great place to bring your kids.

The playground is a favourite for many young families, with a slide, swing set and separate area for children of different ages.

If your child likes to take walks and discover a bit more, there are some cool wooden statues located inside the fern walk.

There are also some indigenous art sculptures throughout the walk.

Wide expanses of lawn means that a picnic and perhaps a kick of a ball might could well be a great Sunday afternoon well spent.

With plenty of local wildlife (including ducks and turtles) kids at the Frankston Botanic Gardens can get distracted easily.

The ornamental lake is a particular hotspot for some of these animals and the council has done a great job with this part of the gardens.

The public toilets are located right next to the playground for easy accessibility for baby changes.

As there are also a number of picnic tables and barbecues available, Frankston Botanic Gardens are popular throughout the year for groups of families looking to cook up a lunch and use the playground or lawn for leisurely activities.

The gardens are surprisingly large - spreading over 7 hectares from Foot Street to Yuille Street.

Much of the planting and stunning gardens have been planted by local community groups and it's proven particularly successful with some stunning trees and a very relaxing, chilled out atmosphere.
