Hedgeley Dene Gardens Mel 1b

Hedgeley Dene Gardens is a public open space in the suburb of Malvern East in Melbourne, Australia. It is one of the most popular parks in the Malvern East locality. It is also significant as an example of public open space design that recreates the qualities of an informal, picturesque English garden or northern European landscape in an Australian suburb. It forms part of a network of linear open spaces in Melbourne's eastern suburbs in the local government areas of the Stonnington and Boroondara, formed along drainage easements and watercourses such as Gardiners Creek. However, Hedgeley Dene Gardens is unique due to its particular landscape character.
