The Park is alongside the river and has water features (including ducks) within it. There is an abundance of grass, plants, shade trees, playgrounds, paths, shelter, public toilets and some BBQs. It is a great place for a picnic.

Footscray Park is a beautiful place for a stroll. It's tranquil and very scenic along the river. There is a beautiful series of artwork on the opposite side of the river (across from the Heavenly Queen Temple) too. The view changes from industrial to greeneries...More
