This large regional park consists of 127 hectares of parklands and nine kilometres of bike paths.
The 11.5 hectare lake is the central feature, attracting ibis, herons, cormorants, ducks and pelicans. Ideal for cycling, kite flying, walking, jogging, fishing and picnics.
The Waverley Rail Trail consists of 'on and off' road tracks. As implied by its name sake this trail runs along the Glen Waverley railway line.
This trail provides direct access to Holmesglen Institute of TAFE, the Glen Shopping Centre and connects to the Dandenong Creek Linear Trail.
This off-road cycling route passes through the Gardiner's Creek Wetlands linking the Blackburn Lakes to the Main Yarra Trail.
- Lower Dandenong Creek - Patterson Lakes to Dandenong
- Middle Dandenong Creek - Dandenong to Jells Park
- Upper Dandenong Creek - Jells Park to Heathmont
A major feature of this trial is that it meanders through suburban areas that are richly resourced with a wide variety of parklands.
This off-road trail runs along the railway line from Hughesdale Station to Centre Road past Oakleigh, Huntingdale and Clayton Stations. The trail also passes the popular shopping precincts of Oakleigh, Clayton and Huntingdale.
Areas of interest include Warrawee memorial park, the Ross Town Rail Trail and Huntingdale Golf Course.
