Everyone needs to get out of the house every now and then, and the family dog is no exception.

Thanks to a $30,000 commitment from the Victorian Government, the proposed dog park will cover a total area of 25m by 50m.

The park will also include a water fountain so that you can leave the lead and the water bowl at home.

It also sports a 25m long flying fox, with an inclusive seat so that no one has to miss out on the next family trip to Hadfield Park. 

In Summer, this park transforms into a water fun park, with water features and fountains that come to life so that your kids can cool off (and have fun doing it) on those steamy summer days. 

The recent addition of a skate park means that even the teens will get excited about every trip to Hadfield park.

It’s not all about the kids though.

Complete with BBQ and a well-equipped wooden playground, this is the perfect spot to spend a peaceful afternoon away from it all.

Merri Creek Park touches on the Merri Creek, a pristine bushland paradise, brimming with iconic Australian wildlife. 

Any quiet spot on the Merri Creek is a paradise with singing galahs and chirping crickets that will make you feel like you’re a million miles away from the city.

As an important and biodiverse habitat for the large number of plants and animals that call it home, groups in the area are working to preserve this special place for generations to come. 

Currently, the Merri Creek Parklands extend from close to the centre of Melbourne, all the way up to beautiful Wallan, with aspirations to extend it up the full length of the Merri.
