Hays Paddock is a popular Australian recreational park in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Kew East. Managed by City of Boroondara council, the park consists of a popular playground, walking & cycling tracks, and two ovals for teams playing Archery, Cricket, and Soccer. The park is also sometimes referred to as 'Kilby Park' due to its proximity to Kilby Road, and 'Glass Creek' due to the creek of the same name that passes through.

The land originally belonging to the Wurundjeri people, William Oswin was the first recorded owner of the land in 1844 where Hays Paddock and Glass Creek flows into the Yarra on a property known as Kilby Farm.
