TOUR 5: Exploring Royal Park

Deaprting from 10AM


At 160 hectares, Royal Park is the City of Melbourne’s largest park.  The vision for the park is to recreate the Australian native landscape character of land and space.  The park includes major facilities, sports grounds, wetlands and passive recreation areas.  Opened in 2015, nature play at Royal Park includes a regional play space, where the Wurundjeri stories of the seven seasons of Melbourne are represented in the plants and play elements.  Developed with extensive consultation with children, this is a new and growing landscape developed on the site of the old children’s hospital. Participants will also have the opportunity to further explore Royal Park, learning about recent initiatives to improve habitat quality, assess tree hollows and new tree planting projects as part of the Nature in the City and Urban Forest Strategies.
