Time Out says
Wander into the centre of the Docklands precinct and suddenly the apartment buildings will fall away to reveal the Docklands Park, a serene escape from the high rise hustle and bustle around it. The park sits right on the waterfront and is built around a natural wetland area, meaning the space features an abundance of native trees and other plants. A number of large scale public artworks are also dotted around the area.
Docklands Park is the best place to have a quiet stroll after an exciting match at Etihad Stadium or to wind down before you catch your train at Southern Cross.
Across the park you’ll find a number of barbeques and areas perfectly suited for picnics. The park is easily accessible by tram or via one of the bike and walking paths that pass through it.
Docklands Park is also kid friendly with large playgrounds providing hours of fun and entertainment. The sand covered play areas feature climbable obstacles, slides and a circular swing set, meaning you’ll never have to wait long for a turn. There’s also plenty of shade cover across the playgrounds for those long summer afternoons spent running through the park.
The Docklands Marina is just next door and is the perfect place to grab a coffee before a walk around the park, or a gourmet dinner after a day lazing in the sun.
