This is a beautifully designed reserve. You should come and spend some time here with your family.†There were so many things to enjoy doing at the reserve. Old gums, a big a climbing frame that you need to navigate to reach the top of the space age looking slide, tree stumps as stepping stones, rocks, deck seats, a community garden and an abundance of space. It's also almost fully fenced, so you don't need to worry about kids running onto the road.
It's wonderful to see how this beautiful area has been designed. There is a creative play space for children of all abilities like spinner, basket swing, see-saw, monkey bar. There are a number of seating options including lounge chairs, throne seat, seat with back rest and two picnic tables.
Wooden play sculptures - a kangaroo, lizard, mushroom house and caterpillar all make the park more attractive and beautiful.
There's a community garden there that's being trialled so if you're interested in getting involved email or call Alicia Hooper on firstname.lastname@example.org or 03 9209 6338. Also, please note, despite the reserve's beauty, there are no public toilets at the actual park. Something to bare in mind if planning a day out with littlies.
Lyell / Iffla Reserve is a place of natural beauty. While there, take photographs, enjoy the view and take in the fresh air. This is a place for people to relax and enjoy. Close to Galilee Regional Catholic Primary School and South Melbourne, the park is easy to access via public transport. The South Melbourne market bus (route 253) passes the garden directly. Bus routes 250 and 251 travel along City Road. The free Port Phillip Community Bus also go past the park. For more info on how to get there, follow this link.
