Time Out Melbourne

Hidden in the back streets of Burnley, this quiet, elegant 19th-century park is something of a local secret. With gravel paths transecting wide grassy expanses, it has a lovely low-key, community feel; kids make the most of the playground, while friendly dogs chase balls. Fire up the barbecue using the facilities provided, or stake out a prime picnic pozzie in the pavilion or against the Anzac memorial’s retaining wall. Barkly Gardens is between Mary and Coppin streets, just a block south from the 70 tram on Swan Street, and halfway between East Richmond and Burnley stations.
