    Been tAking my dog here for years and its fantastic! Love the great Array of trees and birds. Very serene. Footscrays very own botanical gardens. We tend to walk the stretch – my dog loves the shade so get a day over 15c and she goes from tree to tree. Have been taking my neighbours dog too – and even though he loses his ball most days he loves to roll down the hills
