Hedgeley Dene Gardens, Malvern East
Hedgeley Dene Gardens is one of Melbourne’s secret treasures, we call it the secret gardens because only locals know it actually exists.
Tucked amidst period homes and quiet streets in Malvern the established and well-maintained gardens features picnic lawns, shady trees, bridges, a waterfall and small ornamental lake home to resident ducks.
The gardens extend along what was once a watercourse alignment in the 1800’s, dropping gradually from the ornamental lake in the south-west to a simple pocket of green land at Stanley Street. Today the gardens link Central Park and the Gardiners Creek valley parklands.
