Points of Interest

1. Starting point with parking

Alternatively, get off the number 59 tram at Baroda Street and walk East for 5 minutes.

Picnics and reading were popular when I was there

3. Moonee Ponds Creek Totem, Glenn Romanis 2003

This totem is one of 3 sculptures by Glenn Romanis which tell the story of Moonee Ponds Creek as a natural waterway, as a place of Indigenous culture and part of Melbourne's industrial development.

4. Delth Reserve

Take in 'the Gateway' freeway sculpture while standing still. Picnic tables and green grass make this a quiet spot to stop.
